Over 30 years ago, John Fowler and a few others decided to help the children of Rocky Point and the surrounding community who live in the barrios by having a promotion to give bicycles and toys to about 40 children at Christmas. Over the years the Santa Claus Club was formed and the non-profit organization now serves over 5000 children annually. The program now runs year round and they work with many local organizations in Rocky Point including several Orphanages, the Red Cross and the local Catholic Church.
The Santa Claus Club is comprised 100% of volunteer members and the cost to be a club member is only $20 annually. You can count on 100% of all dues, monetary contributions, and item donations to be given to the people who need it the most in Rocky Point. They operate with no overhead or facilities costs and no one gets paid for their services. We would love for you to join our club but you do not have to be a member to donate or participate in the events!
The majority of all item donations is shuttled from the USA with the exception of food. Most food is purchased in Rocky Point with the monetary contributions and member dues. If you are ever in Rocky Point, you can drop off donations at the Baja Hotel or JJ's Cantina in Cholla Bay. Make sure to mark it with Santa Claus Club. If you aren't headed south of the border no problem! Just give us a call or email us and we will arrange for your donations to be picked up. You can also contact us here on this site on the "Contact Us" page.
Each year the Santa Claus Club sponsors various fund raisers including:
