Santa’s Little Helpers (also known as the kids of residents at SilverStar Mountain Resort and the Okanagan) set out on Sunday December 17th to Chartwell Carrington Retirement Residence to surprise them during their mealtime.

Fifteen children aged 5-10 were dressed as Santa’s Little Helpers as they descended on the Vernon residence bearing gifts for some of the Okanagan’s finest residents. Once cupcakes, chocolates and flowers were distributed, the children sung Christmas Carols to a room of 150.

It follows from a recent gift giving in the SilverStar village where passholders were surprised with a range of gifts ranging from Barbeques, gift cards, Houseboat vacations and more (See here: )
