He had a busy night ahead but Santa stopped by Omaha early Monday morning to deliver some holiday cheer. Residents at the Open Door Mission received gifts from Santa and Mrs. Claus.

They won't open the gifts until Christmas morning but more than 1000 homeless men, women and children will receive the gifts donated through the Open Door Mission’s “Adopt-A-Family” program.

Jason Knapp says it gives him an opportunity to celebrate a holiday he wouldn't otherwise.

“Having somebody that gives you a present makes you forget about where you're at for awhile. It makes you feel human again,” said Knapp.

Santa also visited some of the children living at Open Door Mission. He and Mrs. Claus have been doing this for nine years now.
