Santa makes a special appearance in Monroe County.

The Pocono Mountains United Way teamed up with the East Stroudsburg Elk's Lodge to wrap up Giving Tuesday by bringing Santa to town. Santa got kids in the holiday spirit throughout the drive-thru event last night in Stroudsburg. United way leaders say the holidays can be a tough time for a lot of residents, especially this year, so they wanted to do what they can to bring the Christmas cheer to the community.

"This is an opportunity for us just to give back to the people who give to us on a daily basis. Giving Tuesday is an international day of giving where people give up their time, their energy, their energy, their resources, and we wanted to participate in that in our own way," Ryan Lohman, Pocono United Way Director of Development, said.
