  • When this signing Santa speaks to deaf kids it ‘makes Christmas more real’

    For more than 20 years, Sonny Cabbage has been Santa for deaf and hard of hearing kids, plus their families and community members, at Ponderosa Elementary School. Cabbage is deaf, and he remembers what it was like being unable to have a conversation with a Santa who didn't know American Sign Language. That's why he volunteers.
