You might recall a story we've been following the last couple of months regarding the self-made Santa Clause named Jack Bailey.
He opened up Santa's Workshop in Beardstown to refurbish old toys and accept new toy donations for needy kids.
Last year, he helped 400 children.
But with the current economy even more families needed his help.
We're happy to report this year he deliver toys and gifts to * get this* 2,187 children.
That's nearly five times as many as last year.
He hand-delivers most all of the toys...dressed as the jolly man in red.
