Secret Santa is back and this Christmas is bigger than ever!

The team is busy helping a local man gift more than $500,000 this holiday season. A lot more. Secret Santa is a real person who wants to remain anonymous and hopes 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.

Zane Rackham is a 59-year-old father raising three children ages 8, 6 and 5. He became a widower May 4 when his wife died of colon cancer. She was a stay-at-home mom who “had enough love to give to everyone, no matter who.”

Zane and his wife were married over 20 years. He works Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. as a metal fabricator. He was worked his whole life to make sure his family has enough. One of his daughters says Zane is no ordinary man – he is “superman.”

Zane is in need of new work clothes and steel-toed boots. We surprised him at work with a gift from Secret Santa. Watch the video above to see how it all played out!
