Organizers said they couldn’t grant Zerick’s original wish to go to Disney World due to the pandemic, so they asked if he had another wish.

“So when we talked to him and his mom about what other wishes he might want, he said, ‘Well, I’m just really worried Santa can’t come this year,'” said Kim Hales with Make-A-Wish.

Hales said Make-A-Wish stepped in to give Zerick everything on his Christmas list.

“A few items we held back for Santa to deliver, and to just be able to give him the best Christmas ever,” she said.

The surprised happened outside Zerick’s home alongside area first responders.
