An Alaska National Guardsman dressed as Santa Claus rides in a dog sled from the airstrip to the school in Venetie, where he will deliver gifts to the children in the remote Neets'aii Gwich'in Indian community, north of Fairbanks. The Alaska National Guard's Operation Santa Claus will bring donated toys, books, school supplies and goody bags filled with fresh fruit, bottled water, toothbrushes and pencils to 18 villages across the state through mid-December.
