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.
Desiree Skillin has a huge heart. When she found out her uncle was in kidney failure for about a year and a half, she was tested to see if she was a match. She was and didn’t hesitate in donating her kidney.
The procedure happened on Aug. 8 at the University of Utah. Desiree had to stay in Utah for two weeks and then for six weeks at home before she could go back to work.
Desiree is a single mom who never asks for help and is optimistic things will turn out ok. She is now back at work and needs a reliable vehicle to make sure she can care for her family.
Secret Santa asked the East Idaho News elves to go and surprise her with an early Christmas gift!
