Avon, Indiana couple, Ken and Lisa Peplow, recently hosted a Santa and Mrs. Claus Food Drive Walk for the children in their neighborhood.
A few years ago the Peplows bought the costumes as a fun way to visit their four small grandchildren and afterwards they decided to further utilize them for charitable events.
The couple posted in their Facebook Subdivision Group encouraging families to take a walk past their home from 6-6:30 pm Friday evening to receive a big wave from Santa himself! They also offered the opportunity to donate non-perishable food items for the Project Angel of Avon Food Pantry.
The event resulted in a nice large box full of donations. After the recommended 6’ social distancing announcement they chose to continue their efforts by inviting the children of the Woodcreek Crossing subdivision to write a letter to Santa with one question, take a picture, and email it to Santa’s super secret email, and then Santa personally replied. With this they also continue to offer the opportunity to donate to the basket on the Peplow’s porch.
Mrs. Claus/Lisa Peplow stated “We hope this inspires others to think outside the box regarding what they can offer in their community. Simply placing a donation box on your front porch and letting others know it is there is one way of taking simple action that can assist in creating valuable solutions.”
