Operation Santa

Every August, we plan for the most touching Christmas Celebration of the year, Operation Santa! Did you know that close to 250 individuals in our community are in need of support due to a diagnosed mental illness? Operation Santa, held annually, provides for this population by meeting emotional and physical needs…Christmas gifts. The event is a celebration of singing, essential hygiene items, warm clothing and a traditional holiday meal. It’s a special way to celebrate Christmas through giving. Please call for more information about this special event.

If you cannot shop to fill the gift bag due to time demands, you could make a monetary donation & our agency will do the shopping for you. To fill one gift bag with the essentials costs around $150.00. Financial contributions to assist with costs related to the Operation Santa celebration dinner are greatly appreciated.


This annual celebration is often the only Christmas many of the participants have. If you or your organization is interested in Operation Santa, please contact us at: (803) 641-4164.
