HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah – Students at Hill Field Elementary School can purchase gifts at Santa’s Workshop this week, thanks to the school’s Parent Teacher Association.

“The Santa shop is great for the kids because they get to shop for their parents and families without them knowing, which is a great advantage, especially for those with parents that are deployed,” said Dawn Cook, PTA president. “For the PTA, it’s a significant fundraiser for us and it helps us put on our family events, our literacy nights and other fun things for the kids throughout the year.”

Students come in with money in an envelope with the names of family members they are shopping for, said Cook. After they pick out their gifts and pay, the PTA members and volunteers wrap the gifts for them so they are ready to go under their tree. A variety of items are available, from sports memorabilia and snow globes to calculators and coffee mugs, and prices vary from as low as a quarter to several dollars.

This year, she said, more than 75 Team Hill members volunteered to help with the workshop, which is open during school hours through Dec. 20.
