Leisa and Chip Hall, area commanders for The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County, were dressed Monday as Santa and Mrs. Claus at the Little Red Schoolhouse at Phipps Ocean Park.
A group of students from The Salvation Army’s Northwest Community Center in West Palm Beach visited the Little Red Schoolhouse at Phipps Ocean Park as part of the charity’s annual Angel Tree Program.
Twelve children, ages 7-9, visited the schoolhouse. The Monday event helped launch the distribution of nearly 8,000 Christmas gifts to local children, according to the Salvation Army. The children were greeted by teenage trumpeters and Chip and Leisa Hall, area commanders for The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County, who dressed as Santa and Mrs. Claus.
