Santa AL

AL Capehart ’61, aka Santa AL,

Reflects on the Jolliest of Jobs


Every Christmas season over the last 28 years – except this one, in which the pandemic has kept him at the North Pole and (bah humbug) contemplating retirement – Dr. AL Capehart Jr. ’61 of Pittsboro has worked as Santa AL all over the Research Triangle of North Carolina.



Your donation before December 31 will help create transformative moments in the year ahead, and even a small gift goes a long way.


In January, a Pfeiffer athlete will finally turn his attention to the games he wasn’t able to play last fall. In March, a Pfeiffer senior will be integrating the knowledge and perspectives she has gained throughout her undergraduate experience in a culminating project. In April, a “first in family” future Falcon will learn he is receiving scholarship assistance to enable his Pfeiffer education.

You may not play or study next to these students, but you’ll be with them just the same. Your gifts make these milestones possible. Thank you for sharing education – there is no better gift.

Don't forget: December 31 is the end of the 2020 tax year and your last chance to take advantage of special charitable benefits of the CARES Act.
