Santa already spreading good cheer

Santa Claus pays a visit to Yonkers to deliver smiles to developmentally disabled children and adults on Sunday.



"Operation Santa Claus" held a breakfast reception at The Fairways at Dunwoodie.



Organizers say they raised $25,000, which can help life-changing differences. "You can buy equipment for people with disabilities that will help improve their communication skills. That will give them an iPad that will allow them to press a button that says 'I'm hungry. Hi. Thank you'," says Honorary Chairman Nick Spano.



Spano says money will go to several local programs, including the Westchester School for Special Children.



The event was hosted by News 12's Carol Wilkinson.
