NORWALK, Conn. – Santa Claus came to South Norwalk Sunday to enjoy a Latino extravaganza, listening as children performed holiday tunes and dances in honor of their heritage. The South Norwalk Community Center Holiday Celebration ended with gifts for the kids, courtesy of Toys for Tots, and refreshments that included Ecuadorian hot chocolate.

Volunteers Patrick and Marina Ferrandino said the gifts were “a result of our close collaboration with super community leader, Ernie Dumas, and his good friend Peter Havens from Toys for Tots.”

But the photos tell the story. Enjoy them and have a Happy Holiday season – from NancyOnNorwalk.

    SoNoCC would like to thank Anthony Allison, Executive Director of Norwalk Children’s Foundation, for making it possible for each of the children to receive a memorable photo taken with Santa. Also, thank you to so many wonderful volunteers and individual donors who made this all possible. And, finally, a big thank you to Nancy Chapman who took the time to come and capture the spirit of Christmas here at SoNoCC. Merry Christmas, everyone!
