MAILI (KHNL)- Santa made a fancy appearance in West Oahu today. Not on his sleigh, but on his helicopter. And he made dozens of needy children very happy. Young Kina Nishimura says, "That was a big surprise. I didn't expect that to happen!"
She shows us what she got. "I got a glow in the dark and I like it," she exclaims.
A big crowd of children gathered to get a toy and a hug from Santa. Mom Terri Lucas brought her daughter to get a gift. "They provide well for these kids. The whole community pitches in. It's awesome!"
Lucas says it means the world to needy families. "There's so many kids who don't have Christmas. These people help. Look at all these kids. Everybody gets something."
