A sweet surprise from a Secret Santa for this cookie maker whose oven broke last week
The EastIdahoNews.com team is busy helping a local man gift $500,000 this holiday season! Secret Santa is a real person who wants to remain anonymous and wants to help as many people as he can.
We will be surprising deserving people and families every day from now until Christmas with gifts unique to their circumstances.
Alice Wilcox does so much for everyone she knows. She makes hundreds of treats for town gatherings and every week for her husband’s hockey team.
Alice and her husband have had a rough year. Her 7-year-old son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. She struggles with costs and ended up giving up her dream job to homeschool him. She now teaches not only her kids but other kids too.
Alice helps write grants for the city, conducts a free children’s choir, volunteers for the clothing drive and runs the Easter egg hunt and 4th of July entertainment every year.
Last week Alice called her brother crying because her oven broke and she had to make hundreds of cookies for holiday gatherings. She began borrowing other ovens and coming up with creative solutions to make the treats.
Secret Santa knew he could help this holiday season and asked the East Idaho News elves to drop by an early Christmas gift. Watch the video above to see what happened!
