Santa and Mrs. Claus carved time out of their busy schedule to visit Abbeville today.

They visited the Gulf Area SLCC campus today for a few hours.

The Claus family brought gifts and food (gumbo!).

Shelby Desrochers, the Student Life Coordinator at SLCC, explained the reason for the jolly visit.

"Just a sense of belonging that everyone is welcome here. We want to build relationships with the community and just feel welcomed."
