December 9th - Caring Santa™ Event At Dover Mall

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - A local mall is helping children with special needs meet Santa, in a calm environment. On Sunday December 9th, from 8 - 10 AM, in Santa's Library in the Promotional Court of the Dover Mall, Kritter Kove will be hosting a Caring Santa™ event.

This event is for families who have children with special needs, to get their picture taken with Santa. The event provides a subdued environment by turning off in-mall music, dimming the indoor lights, eliminating the line by using a number system, and giving participants a special story page to help explain the activity. All these steps are meant to reduce sensory triggers, and give the children a more comforting experience to meet Santa.

This is the first year that the Dover Mall is participating in the event. Participants are encouraged to RSVP for the Caring Santa event at Dover Mall by going to Ability Path's website.
