The team is busy this holiday season helping a local man gift $1 million to deserving people in eastern Idaho. Secret Santa is a real person who wants to remain anonymous and hopes to bless as many individuals in our community as he can.

Sean works as a hunting guide for four months every fall. His job pays the majority of their bills for the year, so it is a huge deal for his wife, Neva, and their son.

He returned to work in August and during his first week back, Sean was in an ATV rollover accident. He broke both bones in his lower left leg and was hospitalized for over a week. He later had a second surgery where doctors put in a large metal plate with nine pins to hold his bones together. He cannot put any weight on his leg for the first three months of recovery and will need another three months in physical therapy.

Because of the crash, Sean has been unable to work and their income has dwindled. Neva, who is homeschooling their son, has been caring for her husband constantly so is limited on taking a job.

A Secret Santa asked the East Idaho News team if we could pay Sean and Neva a visit with some early Christmas gifts. Watch the video above to see the surprise!
