Sensitive Santa visits Broken Arrow to meet children with special needs

BROKEN ARROW, Okla. — A Special Sensory Santa has been meeting kids in Broken Arrow Tuesday.

He’s a “sensitive Santa” that helps children who have special needs. Organizers turned the music down at this event and made sure there were no usual Christmas hustle and bustle. This way, the children could be as relaxed as possible as they meet Santa.

Sensitive Santa is an annual event, and this year is its third year.

Organizers told FOX23 that the event brings the whole community together at Christmas. Broken Arrow Police and Fire Departments along with Autism and Networking Groups were also on hand to give out help.
