Register by leaving a voice mail at (781)275-1680. If you are calling, leave a message with the following information: your name (please spell your last name, your address, your phone number and the number of gifts to be delivered. You only need to choose one method of registration.

We may call or email if we have additional questions, so please be sure your phone number is provided.

If you are unsure of how many gifts Santa to deliver or if you think that your plans/numbers change, please register now with your best guess and contact us later to update your plans.

Late registrations will be accepted, but please try to register before December 7th. Early registration allows our coordinators to plan routes and recruit enough volunteers for Christmas Eve.

If you missed the registration period, show up to Gift Drop day. If you missed that, please call our Late Gift line: (781)275-1680, we don’t want kids left out.

GIFT DROP DAY

Prepare your gifts. Please keep gifts small, lunch box size or smaller. Make sure that all of the gifts to be delivered to your home will fit together inside one standard size pillow case. Wrap all of the gifts going to your home in the same wrapping paper. Label each gift with the a sticky/Post-It ® note that has the last name used in registration and home address on the front side and the recipient child’s first name and age on the back side.

Show up at JGMS gymnasium for drop off as early in the day as possible with your gifts. Park in the back lot (adjacent the tennis courts and baseball field) for easiest access to the gymnasium.

If you aren’t going to make it to gift drop, consider sending your gifts with neighbors or friends!

If you have not dropped off your gift by about 2pm on Gift Drop day, you might get a phone call reminder from us in the afternoon. Please respond to the phone call!

CHRISTMAS EVE

Be home and ready by 5:30pm. That means your driveway and walkways are shoveled and cleared of snow and ice, your outside lights are on, and your dogs are put away (even if you have a friendly dog, they might not enjoy the commotion and beard!)

Did you get additional guests or your plans change? Please give us a call at (781)275-1680. DO NOT leave gifts outside your door for Santa to discover.

Santa should arrive by 8:00pm. If you haven’t seen him by then, give us a call at (781)275-1680.
