Luther Park at Sandpoint

There Is a Santa Claus at Ecumen's Luther Park at Sandpoint, Idaho

On Christmas morning in Sandpoint, Idaho, a dozen or so small children gather around the tree to see what Santa has brought them.  The kids all have at least one thing in common: Santa is definitely not their parents.  They are the kids of Kinderhaven, a group foster home and emergency shelter in this small northern Idaho town.  They have been removed from their homes and placed here for their own protection.
