Country Santa, formally known as John “Buddy” Cox, has been helping needy children have a better Christmas since 1978. It all started with one first grade girl needing a new pair of shoes; Cox brought her a pair. When he saw her tattered and torn doll, he made sure she had the biggest boxed doll he could find under her tree that year. The next year he provided toys for 10 children. By the fifth year, the list of needy children grew so large, he began soliciting help from those more fortunate in the community. In 2012, Country Santa and his volunteer elves provided toys to over 3,000 children, with about $50 designated for each child.
Coldwell Banker Caine’s Easley office was selected as a designated drop-off for Country Santa this year! They are extremely excited to be a part of this ongoing tradition. Starting immediately, new unwrapped toys are requested and may be dropped off at the downtown Easley office at Old Market Square during our regular business hours, Monday -Friday. Santa’s elves will pick up the collection of toys and deliver it his toy warehouse to be distributed to the children on Christmas Eve.
Wouldn’t you like to make a child smile this Christmas? Help Country Santa make this a reality!
The last day to drop off toys is December 18th.
