(ABC 6 News) – Christmas Eve is a big night for Santa, but he took a break from delivering toys on Friday to tend to some very important business in Rochester with Mrs. Claus

Three weeks ago, Shayne Olheiser and her family were thinking about ways to make this season special and make it special for families with adults or children with disabilities. It didn’t take long to get an idea

Olheiser came up with the idea of ​​inviting Santa Claus for parade-style visits after seeing how much money her own family has been asking for this year.She has a daughter and son-in-law who both have Down syndrome Pandemic isolated her and her friends and since they couldn’t visit Santa Claus as usual, Olheiser made sure that Santa Claus was brought to them

“My daughter and my son-in-law’s friends are definitely struggling with isolation right now, so this is a response to that,” said Olheiser. “It’s just amazing being able to take Santa Claus right to so many kids and adults in Rochester What for a gift to all of us “

What started as a simple idea soon turned into a lot of support from the community and eager Rochester residents to see the only Santa Claus

“We have so many stops today that I think it’s great,” said Mrs Said Claus “We will make a lot of people really happy” ”
Santa Claus also had a message for the adults and children who were waiting for his arrival
