What Is Lifetime’s The Santa Squad About?

According to TVLine, Allie (Dalton) is an out of work art teacher. What does a teacher do when she is unemployed? She joins The Santa Squad. Her job is to help out a wealthy widower Gordon (Ashmore).

He and his two adorable daughters, Rose and Iris, desperately need some Christmas magic. Can Allie bring that magic into their home? She gives it all she has, as she helps the family buy a tree, make homemade decorations, shop for presents and bake cookies. She in turn, gets a lot of love.
