Run Time: 3:44 Operation Santa Claus visited Kake Nov. 14 in the 57th year of the event. Operation Santa Claus is part of the Alaska National Guard’s yearly community relations and support program that provides toys, clothing, books, school supplies, fresh fruit and sundaes to youngsters in communities across the state. This year’s events will bring Santa, Mrs. Claus and a team of elves to these villages on a variety of Santa’s sleighs – an Alaska Air National Guard C-130, an Alaska Army National Guard UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter or an Alaska Army National Guard C-23 Sherpa. Operation Santa Claus will be traveling to three communities this year: Kake, Kwethluk and St. George Island. Available in High Definition.
