What is Secret Santa?
Sonoma County's Secret Santa has brought joy to people in our community for over 20 years!
Sonoma County’s Secret Santa helps ensure that kids, teens, adults, and seniors who would not otherwise have a holiday gift, are able to smile and have hope during the holiday season.
The helping hand extended by generous individuals and families to individuals & families in need ensures that our hearts are connected!

How It All Began...
The GIVING TREE began in 1989 at The Volunteer Center with gift wishes for individuals on Red Heart Ornaments displayed on trees around the county.
KZST started the SECRET SANTA program in 1990 with Brent Ferris reading letters about individuals and families and what they needed.
The Giving Tree and Secret Santa joined forces in 2008 to provide a better way to meet the growing need at the holidays.
Sonoma County’s Secret Santa is a partnership of
The Volunteer Center of Sonoma County -KZST Radio Station
Friedman's Home Improvement PLUS over 100 business sponsors
located throughout the county…
from Santa Rosa to Cloverdale to Petaluma to Sonoma and out to the Coast.
Last year over 14,000 gifts were given to the clients of over
100 social service agencies and schools.
