Dear Grain Valley Businesses and Friends,             

Most of you are aware of the GV Santa Bus. This year will mark the start of the second 25 years of the great tridition. For those that aren’t aware this is a tradition that started a couple years before I took it over in 1996. We drive up and down every street in Grain Valley giving out toys and candy to all the kids plus taking their picture with Santa at no cost to them. When I first started doing this we did the entire town in one day. We’re now doing four 10 – 12 hour Saturdays and four 9 – 10 hour Sundays. We very much hope this year will go back to the a normal Christmas Season as we enjoyed in the past.  

We are asking all businesses in Grain Valley and Friends of the Sannta Bus for their assistance in defraying our costs. Normally we incur cost between $3,000 to $4,000 a year. While costs were down a little in 2020 because of a lighter turn out due to Covid precautions unfortunately donations were down even more. I did have to contribute more than I normaly did in past years and our reserve is completely depleted. Any donations made can be tax deductible as advertising expense as we list you on our web-site as a donor. Those checks can be made payable to GV Santa. If you are donating over $250 and want to list it as a charitable donation check it can be made payable to Focus for Grain Valley which is a 501c and you will be provided a receipt. All checks can be mailed to GV Santa 611 SW Cross Creek Dr. GV Mo. 64029. Or if you would like me to stop by and pick up any donation please call me at 816-309-4167.  All Business Sponsors will  listed on our web-site <GVSanta.com> .  Please visit our sites or follow us on FB GV Santa Bus to find out more about us. This year I have also added two sites to make it easier for those that would like to donate Venmo @GVSanta96 and Cash App GVSanta96. 
Gold Sponsors – $500 and above
Silver Sponsors – $250 to $499
Bronze Sponsors up to $249
We need the continued support of those that donated in the past and new donors that want to help continue this wonderful tradition. No donation is too small they all add up and all are appreciated. Thank you in advance for your support.
Wishing you all the best for the 2021 Holiday Season
