Race Charity

Santa Hustle is proud to support the Glendale Fire Charities! Every day Glendale Firefighters risk their lives to help those in need while working 24 hour shifts; while off duty, last year, we made a difference in the community by volunteering over 8000 hours to support numerous local community causes including: Hope for Hunger Food Bank, Glendale Firefighters Annual Toy Drive, Glendale Firefighters Back to School Drive, neighborhood smoke detector and water safety walks, and donations of services, food and money to Glendale families in need. This year we have started a program to assist our local military Veterans in need, installed a pool fence, repaired an air conditioner unit for a Glendale family, donated thousands of dollars to support Valley Firefighters who have come down with cancer and provided financial support to families of our fallen police department brothers.

Santa Hustle will be collecting toys for the Glendale Firefighter’s Toy Drive! All toys donated go to children in need, so on event day please bring new toys to make a children’s Christmas! Boxes will be by the information booth on December 11.

Refunds / Exchanges

Since Santa Claus has many upfront costs, we have a strict and uniform policy of no refunds or exchanges, no person-to-person transfer, or no deferrals to a future year. We do understand that plans change, injuries happen, and various holiday festivities and situations arise, but, we feel it is most fair to apply a uniform policy to all, instead of a subjective line of who should receive a refund and who doesn’t.  All purchases and sales are 100% final, no exceptions. The event will take place rain or shine and refunds will not be issued based on weather conditions. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.
