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.
