(KUTV) We all know that Santa is very busy this time of year, so every now and then "Mrs. Claus" picks up some of the slack, and helps out some of Santa's favorite friends. Janet Flinders, also referred to as Mrs. Claus, is this weeks Pay It Forward recipient.
Janet Flinders and her husband Skip have been bringing Christmas to the people of Logan, Utah since the 1990's. Skip passed away last year, but Janet continues to bring Christmas to disabled kids and adults at the Cache County Employment and Training Center.
What started as a simple trip to deliver goodie bags a few years ago has turned into a workshop. The people at the center send Mrs. Claus a gift list, she fills each order with donations and money from her own pocket, and always adds something extra.
It takes three months of hard work and a lot of money, but Janet says it is worth it for the joy it brings.
