Barber Center Helps Kids Visit With Santa

Posted: Updated:

It was holiday celebration Sunday at the Millcreek Mall for the Barber National Institute, with their annual Autism-Friendly Time with Santa.

Kids got to meet Santa, and take part in some crafts. Those at the Barber National Institute tell us families of children with autism and other special needs know it can be difficult to make a trip to the mall to see Santa, and they want to do what they can to help.

"Every single parent wants to have that picture of Santa with their child on the mantle at Christmas," said Executive Vice President of the Barber National Institute Maureen Barber-Carey. "This is just our way of reaching out to families to make it easier, to make it better during the holidays."

Around 100 kids took part in the event.
