St. Louis’ Jewish Santa

    For almost 50 years, one St. Louis woman has been leading a holiday toy drive that has grown from serving dozens of disadvantaged families, to hundreds. It has even expanded to give away toys in the summer. Paul Schankman shows us how it all started, and introduces us to the Santa Claus who founded Santa’s Helpers, and runs it even though she does not personally celebrate Christmas.
