Santa Visits Oakbend

Richmond, TX…Santa took time out of his busy schedule to visit OakBend Medical Center on Thursday night to see who has been naughty or nice.

For the past three years, OakBend employees and their families have been treated to cookies and punch and a chance to tell Santa exactly what they want for Christmas. After a little one-to-one Santa time, everyone took the opportunity to enjoy refreshments, visit with each other and watch their children and grandchildren make new friends.

Santa could only visit the hospital for a couple of hours before he had to get back to the North Pole to oversee Santa’s workshop. But one thing is for sure, these children made sure Santa knew exactly what they want for Christmas.
