From the Independence Emergency Squad,

The 4th Annual Whitesville Santa Visit hosted by the Independence Emergency Squad (IES) was created in 2020 to give our community children an opportunity to see Santa Claus in person safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has transitioned from a drive-by where Santa handed gifts to the kids while they remained in their cars during 2020 and 2021 to giving the families an opportunity to have their pictures taken next to Santa. We were blessed with the support of our community’s organization, businesses, and individuals that afforded gifts and treat bags to be given to 92 precious children in our local area.

 IES wishes to extend a special thanks to the wonderful people in our volunteer organizations who gave their time and energy to help make this event possible.

IES wishes to acknowledge to these donors for their monetary support:

Independence Emergency Squad, Inc., The Town of Independence, WVFD Ladies Auxiliary, Jeri & Ken Reichman, Whitesville Volunteer Fire Department, Whitesville Rod  Gun Club, Whitesville Wood Products, Independence Historical Society, Whitesville United Methodist Church, Graves Construction, Whitesville Public Library, Cindy  & Ron Welch, and Taxes  Etc..
