Welcome to the official site of Project Santa, an annual fundraiser that benefits the South Plainfield Volunteer Fire Department!

We all know Santa is a busy man during the holiday season, but he is taking some time away from the North Pole to help the members of the South Plainfield Fire Department spread some holiday cheer, and help deliver some early Christmas presents to the good boys and girls in the borough of South Plainfield!  


After a two-year hiatus, Project Santa returns for 2022!

In addition, we have partnered with the South Plainfield Public Celebrations Committee where we will be escorting Santa through a special Holiday Light Parade!
