Sensitive Santa event set for Dec. 17 in Sallisaw

Thursday, December 7, 2023 - The Sallisaw Special Needs Committee, in collaboration with Sozos Coffee Co. & Bistro and J & D’s Steakhouse, is hosting a free Sensitive Santa event on Sunday, December 17 from 2–5 p.m.

This thoughtful event is tailored to provide children with special needs and their families a chance to meet Santa in a sensory-friendly setting.

The evening of activities has been divided between two locations to help keep the overwhelming crowds and noise levels at a minimum. Sozo's Coffee Co. & Bistro, located at 211 N. Oak Street in Sallisaw, is where children will go for the opportunity to meet and take pictures with Santa.

J & D’s Steakhouse will be hosting a range of Christmas crafts and games at their venue, which is located just across the street from Sozo’s at 230 N. Oak Street.

Individuals and their families can anticipate not only the opportunity to meet Sensitive Santa but also partake in the creation of ornaments enjoy treats, and get the chance to win raffle prizes.

It is important to note that Sensitive Santa was designed to create a welcoming and inclusive environment where families can celebrate the holiday season in a calm and stress-free atmosphere.
