On Dec. 12, Republic Services delivered about 125 gifts to children in the Kenmore Elementary Secret Santa program. These are children who would be without gifts this season if people did not step up to help.
Republic Services' local offices (Bellevue and Lynnwood divisions) received letters to Santa (Papa Noel) from Kenmore Elementary children. Letters included more than one item on them and many were written in Spanish.
Gifts included items such as bikes, clothing and shoes, toys, books and more. All gifts, except the bikes, were wrapped. Gifts were delivered to families before school let out for winter break on Dec. 16.
