Valley's Santa Bob in need of sturdy sleigh

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Santa and his sleigh go together like the cookies and milk you leave out for the jolly old man on Christmas Eve.

But our very own "Santa Bob" here in the valley has hit a snag -- his sleigh won't get the job done to deliver toys this year to families in need and he needs your help.

He's the symbol of the Christmas season -- always jolly and always generous to kids in need of a little holiday cheer.

For all that hard work to help, especially those families who don't have the luxury of gifts, Santa Bob only asks for some simple sustenance.

"Big fat homemade chocolate chip cookies with macadamia nuts," says Santa Bob.

Not only has he helped more than 500 needy families celebrate the holiday season over the years, Santa Bob allows those with means to share in the magic as well, sponsoring families and spreading Christmas cheer together.

"The rewards are tremendous. You take a little boy or girl six years old and the only Santa they see is at the mall. Now here comes the real one from the North Pole but he has to drive a van."

But this year Santa Bob's sleigh has hit the skids -- the seasoned Dodge Caravan is in need of a Christmas miracle or else Santa Bob can't carry out the mission for which he feels he was destined.

"I am truly the one that's blessed. There's two things better than this, having a significant other and having your own children or grandchildren, but there's nothing better," he says.

If you can help him get back on his way he can get back to what he does best, and give to others to make magical Christmas wishes come true.

If you've got a vehicle to donate, if you've got a cash donation, or if you'd like to sponsor a family -- you can do a lot of good and help Santa Bob fulfill his mission.

He's just one man but he's always looking to recruit new elves this time of year and he really needs your help.

    A Delta Air Lines flight from La Guardia Airport to West Palm Beach, Florida, was diverted to Jacksonville because of a dispute between passengers over a reclining seat. Delta reportedly says the flight was diverted Monday night when a woman got into an argument with a passenger behind her when the woman was trying to recline her seat while the other passenger was trying to sleep on the tray table.
