Project Santa (Gift, Inc.) is a non-profit organization that works with the Monterey County Social Services in collecting Christmas gifts for hundreds of kids in foster care. Dyane Tori, is our Project Santa Chief and there are four other retired volunteers that work to collect all the gifts.
We have Christmas ornaments available to adopt a child. The ornament will list the child’s name/age and it lists their gift wishes for Christmas this year. Please text Dyane Tori on her cell phone 831-594-2051 and she can assist you in picking out an ornament. If you have any questions or would like to make a gift or cash donation please contact Dyane directly.
