Santa's Helpers is a group of community members keeping the long-time Fairbanks tradition of Santa's Clearing House alive. Santa's Clearing House was started by Mr. Snedden, former owner of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. North Star Community Foundation is now the home for over 40 volunteers.

Your generosity allows Santa's Helpers to receive community referrals to continue to have neighbors helping neighbors though a week's worth of staples, a holiday meal and gifts for each child under age 18. Coordination with Love INC, The Salvation Army and other organizations helps prevent overlapping services and provide for as many children as possible.
In the tradition of the Sneddens and the Daily News Miner family, Santa's Helpers also works annually with many groups and organizations such as the Fairbanks Community Food Bank, Red Cross, Santa's Senior Center, The Doll Ladies, and UAF Nanook Hockey to spread holiday cheer. You are a part of a true community endeavor we hope will be in Fairbanks for years to come.
