MILWAUKIE, Ore. (KOIN) — Keith McDonley is “helping Santa” while giving away Christmas trees!!

The 26-year-old started this tradition four years ago. He sits outside his Milwaukie home every night from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., dressed as Santa Claus. McDonley gives out cookies and cocoa to visitors, while collecting food donations for the St. Vincent de Paul charity. He collected about 500 pounds of non-perishable food in Christmas 2012. He hopes to beat that by about 200 pounds this Christmas season. Thank You Keith!! McDonley said he’s hoping someday, when those families get back on their feet, they can do something nice for someone else. His tree lot, at 8212 SE Clackamas Road in Milwaukie, is open every night through Dec. 24.…aukie
