NEW YORK (PIX11)– Santa Claus and Macy’s Herald Square join forces once again to bring a little Christmas magic to some of New York City’s most deserving youth.

In a true showing of holiday spirit, the one-and-only Santa Claus welcomes over 400 underprivileged children from all five boroughs to Macy’s Santaland for the 64th annual Operation Happy Children.

Macy’s Herald Square presents Operation Happy Children in partnership with the Department of Homeless Services and the Hispanic Heritage Foundation as a gift to the children of New York City.

All children will be treated to breakfast provided by Au Bon Pain and most importantly a guided tour of Macy’s Santaland, concluding with a visit with Santa Claus! who will present each child a special gift.
