Santa To The Villages
December 22, 2019
Santa and his elf helpers stand in front of a U.S. Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter before being flown to Akhiok Island, a remote Alaskan village on Kodiak Island, where children eagerly await visiting with Santa and receiving gifts from him. Santa To The Villages is an annual outreach where Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak pilots, crew and spouses fly to remote Kodiak villages to bring Christmas cheer to children.
