Byline: Associated Press

KODIAK, Alaska (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard is again helping Santa visit villages on Alaska’s Kodiak Island.

Santa and his elves were flown in Dec. 6 on a Coast Guard helicopter to remote communities, including the village of Ouzinkie, as part of the annual Santa to Villages program.

The gift-giving program is sponsored by the Coast Guard Spouses Association of Kodiak as a way to give children of villages around Kodiak Island the joy of meeting Santa.
