The Window executive director Ed Swartley, right, receives checks totaling the amount of $5,485.54 from Gary Treharne, one of the organizers of SantaCon on Thursday afternoon while, from left, Rick Gingerich, Brad Park and Bob Wilson watch. For the past three years, SantaCon has raised money to support The Window. This year’s SantaCon featured 22 Santas who visited 15 local businesses to collect donations. “We invade establishments and spread Christmas cheer,” Treharne said. SantaCon organizers have chosen to support The Window because they wanted to bring exposure to a lesser known local charity. Swartley was very appreciative of their efforts. “These donations will feed a lot of people,” Swartley said.
