Santa visits Ridgeview Elementary School, inspires food drive

CRAIG —  Santa Claus made a special visit to Ridgeview Elementary School on Thursday, Dec. 13. Each child had the opportunity to speak with the jolly old elf and receive a candy cane, while Janele Husband, local award-winning photographer, snapped pictures.

Santa has been visiting the school for many years, and each time, he inspires the children to collect non-perishable food items they then donate to the local food bank.

The classes competed to collect the most food items, and the winning class will receive a pizza party. The competition ended Friday, and results were not immediately available.
