Y-Kiki Divers to host scuba photos with Santa on Dec. 3

Certified PADI scuba divers in the St. Louis Area can take underwater Christmas photos with Santa on Dec. 3 to raise money for the St. Louis Area Foodbank.

In order to participate, divers must be certified and bring at least $15 worth of canned food or product donations to contribute. The photo session will take place between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. at the Parkway West High School pool. In place of physical donations, divers can also bring a check made out to St. Louis Area Foodbank.

Y-Kiki dive shop, with locations in Creve Coeur and South County, will supply scuba equipment if divers do not wish to get their own gear wet. The company’s goal is to generate 2,000 meals worth of donations.

“This is a great way to brush up on diving skills and help the community,” scuba and physical education teacher Tommie Rowe said. “[West] students [enrolled in scuba class] call also earn make-up credit by attending this event.”
