Started in 1990, Special Kids Day began as a holiday event for children with special needs and their families to visit Santa Claus without obstacles.


Today, Special Kids Day has evolved into a not-for-profit, 501(c)-(3) organization dedicated to providing celebratory events for children with disabilities and their families in environments designed to accommodate their special needs.

April 2014:

The Andi Stelzner Fund: We are both humbled by and appreciative of a grant we received from the Andi Stelzner Fund of the DuPage Community Foundation. Please read Andi’s story and recognize how closely we mirror each other’s mission. From Andi's web site:: “...we established the fund to provide support and opportunities for physically and neurologically challenged children and adults to enjoy as much of life as possible.”
We will, with financial help like this from the Andi Stelzner Fund, promise no less than they expect of us.

Thank you for your trust,

Special Kids Day Board
