Santa’s Coming To Cobb started in 2005 by Dr. Louis Hilliard at Back2 Back Family Chiropractic in Mableton Georgia. Dr. Hilliard saw the need and wanted to make a difference in his community. Starting with just 5 children he knew he wanted to make more Christmas dreams come true. Now his program has grown to host over 3000 families at his last event, in Cobb and has made Christmas dreams come true to over 50,000 children.
Santa’s Coming To Cobb program is like no other celebration. It a winter wonder land that is apart of every child’s dreams. Santa flies in by helicopter bringing toys and Christmas excitement. Every Child gets a gift and picture with Santa. There are many Christmas activities for families do to from petting zoo, bounces, games, live music, local youth performances, and real snow! There is something for everyone.
There is a need.
Yes, Cobb County is one of the best places to live in world. We have an amazing diverse population mostly of White, Black and Hispanic people that makes are community great. But it does have its downfalls with an 18% Unemployment rate. The Minority income >$38,000 for family of three or more and over 16,000 and the number of Families living in poverty is almost 10% of the Cobb population. With that, we have a big need locally. Children need help making their Christmas dreams come true.
I can’t do it alone.
Every year I am blessed to see my event grow from just a few, to a few thousand. But I can’t do it alone and I need your help. I am looking to put on the most spectacular Christmas show that our community has ever seen. That takes support, financial contributions and donations. I am sure you will get bombarded with toy drives and donations, never to see where your donation goes. But I can assure you that 100% of your donation will go to the children of our great community. I invite you your family and staff to be apart of this great Christmas tradition and please help me make Christmas dreams to come true.
