The Charles Paddock Zoo in Atascadero is hosting a virtual Holiday Magic event Dec. 19.

This year, Zookeepers have stepped in to serve as Santa's Elves.

They will prepare gifts for all the animals and then share the experience live through its Facebook and Instagram pages.

If you'd like to help Santa and the zoo animals this year, visit the zoo's Amazon wishlist and make a donation.

Zookeepers want to wish everyone a safe, healthy and fun holiday season.
