Purple Santa was started to ensure that the children of our nation’s war wounded had a Christmas to remember. These children are heroes in their own right because they have had to sacrifice to help with their parent’s recovery and provide support; so to ensure that the smallest and many times unseen heroes have a wonderful Christmas Purple Santa was created by Wheelers for the Wounded and The Military Order of the Purple Heart.
