About SantaCAN

There are more than 27,000 children in foster care in Los Angeles. For many of them the holidays are an empty time...with no permanent family or holiday wishes granted. 

SantaCAN ensures that the holidays are a wonderful time for these youth in care by making sure they each receive their most wished for gift from a wish list they compile. Thanks to the generosity of SantaCAN holiday angels, more than 6,000 foster youth have had their wishes fulfilled! 

CAN is a fiscally sponsored project of Tides Center a 501(c)3 nonprofit.
