At the Ricky Proehl P.O.W.E.R. of Play Foundation, we are reminded how blessed we are during this season of giving. However, we are also reminded of families in our community that are not as fortunate. “I had feared that Christmas would be just another reminder of loss and grief, but thanks to your foundation and all who contributed the magic of Christmas remained” ~Wendy (Santa’s Helpers recipient) The holidays can be a time of anxiety and uncertainty for many, but you can help grant a child’s wish this Christmas and be a blessing to a family in need by participating in our Santa’s Helpers program.

This year, Santa and Mrs.Claus will be at Proehlific Park on Thursday, Dec. 8th,2022 from 4-6 PM. 


In 2021, 306 foster children were provided Christmas assistance.

That is all thanks to you - our wonderful community! We are so grateful for your continued support and generosity. You are the driving force behind our organization and we could not do this without you. Thank you for bringing smiles to these children's faces and making a lasting impact on their lives.
