Fox 4: Santa & Mrs. Claus visit and encourage kids at Children's Mercy

by Michelle Pekarsky

Santa and Mrs. Claus made their annual visit to Children’s Mercy on Thursday for the Christmas party they host for patients and their families.

Mr. and Mrs. Claus have been visiting the children at the hospital for the last 15 years. Santa explained that he and Mrs. Claus (also known as Duane and Deanna Albert) had a son who spent a lot of time at Children’s Mercy.

“What's special for us is the children coming down and just for a couple hours of the day being able to escape their reality and laugh and smile and enjoy an afternoon,” Santa said.
