This year, young medically fragile patients who have long-term, clinically complex conditions at Community Hospital of San Bernardino were granted a special wish never imagined: a visit from Santa Claus! Christmas came early at Community Hospital of San Bernardino as Santa came straight from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, bringing gifts and holiday cheer.
After his appearance in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Santa hit the road for a national holiday 25-city bus tour as part of the Macy’s Believe campaign. Through this campaign, people of all ages can visit a local Macy’s, fill out a postcard addressed to Santa, and drop it in the special “Believe” mailbox.
For each postcard received, Macy’s will make a $1 donation to Make-A-Wish, up to $1 million, helping make dreams come true for young children with life threatening illnesses. Seventy five percent of the funds raised through this campaign stay local. Children can drop their letters in any of Macy’s stores in the Inland Empire.
