Glendale Galleria Santa Claus Gives Free Tree Saplings for Children to Plant at Home as a Way to Help Replace Trees Burned in Recent Southern California Fires

Glendale Galleria Santa Claus Gives Free Tree Saplings for Children to Plant at Home as a Way to Help Replace Trees Burned in Recent Southern California Fires ( Santa Claus is bringing a special message to children who visit with him at Glendale Galleria, located just five miles from downtown Los Angeles. Beginning Friday, November 16, Santa is giving away tree saplings to children who visit him so that they can plant them at home as a way to help replace the thousands of trees burned in the recent Southern California fires.

Visitors to Glendale Galleria, both young and old, enjoy visiting Santa (Mark Greer Thompson) throughout the season as he shows off his vocal talents and bass-baritone singing voice each year by performing a collection of favorite holiday songs. Throughout Santa Thompson's career, he has made numerous appearances in musical theatre, Light and Grand Opera. Performing material ranging from Gilbert & Sullivan to Puccini, with the privilege of studying vocal technique under the legendary opera great, Giorgio Tozzi, Thompson has performed at the Lawrence Welk Village Theatre, Long Beach Civic Light Opera, Disneyland and the historic Santa Barbara Biltmore Hotel.

Given his hearty laugh and twinkling eyes, this Santa Claus graduated with honors from “Santa School" and has been delighting holiday visitors for more than 12 Christmas seasons with his yuletide cheer. Glendale Galleria is Southern California’s premiere shopping destination with over 250 of the country’s top brand specialty stores and five major department stores all under one roof.
