The NRG Gingerbread House will bring back a cherished holiday tradition for generations of Pittsburghers. The Original Downtown Santa-Land Co. was housed in Kaufmann’s and then Macy’s since the 1930s until Macy’s closed its downtown location in 2015. The NRG Gingerbread House will be the new home to The Original Downtown Santa-Land Co., complete with vintage Santa’s chair, reindeer, wreaths and red carpet, all part of the familiar feel that makes the holidays in Pittsburgh, magical!
The station’s promotion and broadcasts will benefit the Free Care Fund at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. The Free Care Fund at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is here to ensure that children within our region receive the expert care they need and deserve regardless of their families insurance or ability to pay.
