Santa Claus is coming to Pontiac, Michigan! This special evening begins on Friday, December 9th at Elizabeth Lake Urgent Care in Waterford, Michigan at 5 pm where Santa will greet families and children with candy canes. Then, around 6:30, he’ll make a special stop at American Jewelry and Loan’s Pontiac location to pick up donated items which he’ll then deliver to Oakland Hope at 73 Summit Drive in Pontiac.
“We’ve been collecting items including paper goods, toiletries, and diapers to donate to Oakland Hope and we’re excited that Santa will deliver them for us,” said Les Gold, owner of the iconic pawnshop “he’s probably the only guy busier than me at this time of year.”
“We have made a significant investment into Pontiac, and we’re thrilled to meet fellow business owners like the team from Elizabeth Lake Urgent Care and of course community partners like Oakland Hope,” added Seth Gold “giving back to the community is important to our family, our employees, and our business.”
Both American Jewelry and Loan and Elizabeth Lake Urgent Care have been collecting items to benefit Oakland Hope. “The need in this area is great, particularly at this time of year,” said Norma Okonski, Executive Director. “We look forward to Santa’s special visit and look forward to this opportunity to welcome the community to our new facility.”
