Dear Operation Christmas friends,

 

The holiday season is just around the corner! If your houses are like ours, you might be already starting to think about what Santa will bring for your kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews. While lots of us get excited to make our shopping lists, there are also many families in Warren County that aren't sure how they are going to fill their kids' stockings this year. Your holiday gift to Operation Christmas will ensure parents can purchase gifts for their children, families can share a warm meal, and everyone can celebrate the joy of the season without financial stress.
 

In 2021, Operation Christmas provided gifts for nearly 600 children and meals for 290 families. As The Helping Hand has seen a significant increase in need - serving nearly double the number of families in summer 2022 than previous years - we are preparing to support more kids and families than ever. It is our hope that, with your help, we can raise the $40,000 needed to ensure all Warren County kids have a gift under their tree and families have a meal on their table.
