Volunteer to be Santa or Mrs. Claus!

Midland Parks and Recreation (and the children of Midland) need your assistance! We are looking for Midland’s finest gentlemen to speak like Santa Claus during our annual Santa Calling program. We also take the lovely ladies to be Mrs. Claus and elves!

We need volunteers to “patch calls through” (*spoiler alert* pretend to be Santa) to the many children that sign up for the program. Calls are made from the Parks and Recreation Offices so you won’t be seen – only heard. We provide all Santas with talking points (reindeer’s names, etc.), information about the children (pet’s names, gifts, etc.) and ways to get you out of slippery situations ("Hear that? That's Mrs. Claus calling me for dinner!)" We also provide refreshment to keep those voices in tip-top shape!  

To volunteer, click on the volunteer button above. You can volunteer one night or as many as you would like! Please tell your friends and co-workers – there are a lot of children to call!

2023 Santa Calling

Registration starts November 13th


What is Santa Calling?

Santa Calling is a program in which Midland Parks and Recreation "patches calls through" from the North Pole to pre-registered children in the Midland area. The program is a free and festive way to celebrate Christmas. Simply register the believers in your family so we can surprise them with a call from the North Pole! At registration we will ask all sorts of secret questions that only your child will know - we want to make sure they are surprised!

Please understand that is program is powered by volunteers and we need to limit the number of calls per night. Please be sure to register early - and help us by volunteering!
