Everyone wants a photo with Santa!Christmas Off Campus is a premier Christmas program we offer to families and children who would normally not have the opportunity to celebrate the holiday festively.

Campus Ministry and student volunteers bring the spirit of Christmas to the families and children at the Next Step Shelter in Kaka’ako. The families are treated to a Christmas meal, followed with live entertainment by our students, and activities for the children. The highlight of the evening is always Santa’s visit and the gifts he brings for each child and family.

As family photos are taken with Santa, Christmas carols signal the end of the program. Children leave with broad smiles on their faces. For many of our students, this is the greatest gift they could offer, bringing joy to a child and helping put a smile on their face.
