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 2020, Operation Christmas provided gifts for 600 children and meals for 275 families. This year, we are partnering with more community organizations like The Heal House of Iowa and local libraries to expand our impact. In order to serve more kids and families, Operation Christmas has a goal of raising $30,000 to ensure all Warren County kids can have a gift under their tree and dinner on their table – but we need your help.

As Operation Christmas is entirely volunteer run, 100% of your donation will go to making the holidays special for local kids and families. Thank you in advance for your support. We are asking for donations to be made by October 31st. Donate online by filling out the form or mail a check payable to The Helping Hand/Operation Christmas
