Since the program’s inception, Simon has teamed up with AbilityPath, an online resource hub and social network for families of children with special needs, to coordinate event logistics.

Caring Santa appeared at Town Center at Cobb, Mall of Georgia, Lenox Square and Northlake Mall on December 2 prior to mall opening to accommodate the sensory, physical and other developmental needs of all guests.

Kelly Fischer visited Caring Santa with her son at a Simon mall and was enthusiastic about the visit. “Thank you so much for making this opportunity available to us!” she wrote. “Our son was able to have an enjoyable time with Santa, when typically he would have been so overwhelmed by the noise and crowd. For children with autism, this allows them to really enjoy a popular Christmas tradition! Thanks again!!” Fischer serves as a Vice President, Autism Society, Greater New Orleans chapter.
