Supporting U.S. Children in Poverty

Arvada, CO---The Noerr Programs, operators of the Santa Photo Experience at over 180 locations nationwide, demonstrated Santa’s spirit of generosity this holiday season by launching a fundraising effort to support Save the Children’s U.S. Programs.

“We wanted to find a way to perpetuate the heart and generosity of Santa, by encouraging our guests at regional shopping centers throughout the country to support Save the Children,” said Judy Noerr, President of The Noerr Programs, a digital event imaging company that annually deploys more than 250 naturally bearded gentlemen to embody the persona of Santa during the holiday season. “We were deeply moved by the thousands of families that contributed to this cause during challenging times, helping us surpass our goal.”

Save the Children works in some of the most remote, struggling communities in rural America offering proven early education, literacy, physical activity and nutrition programs for children.

“Children living in poverty fall behind because they aren’t given the same opportunities to succeed as other children,” said Mark Shriver, senior vice president of Save the Children’s U.S. Programs.” Our programs work to close that gap and this generous support from The Noerr Programs will help us continue to put children on a pathway to a lifetime of success.”

“In uncertain times, Santa continues to provide a sense of hope and goodwill that our guests gravitate to,” said Judy Noerr. “Staying true to the heart, soul and tradition of Santa by reinforcing his spirit of generosity through Save the Children gives us another way to create holiday magic for families in every corner of the country.”
