BOISE, Idaho — With Santa working from home this year, things will be a little different this holiday season.

The Idaho Botanical Garden is partnering with local businesses and organizations to spread holiday cheer to local families in need this winter. The Garden has transformed their retail space into a replica of Santa's Cottage and workshop for their Winter Garden aGlow event.

"But the magic really happens after our event closes up and all of those toys and games that were donated from those local companies are going out to non-profit organizations who have families in need in our community," said Erin Anderson, executive director.

Winter Garden aGlow runs through this Sunday and is open from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are not sold at the gate this year, you can buy them online by clicking here.
