Community Members, We Need You!

As a community member, there are many ways you can contribute to Operation Santa. Consider becoming a 'Civilian Elf' and adopting a military child's Santa wishlist. Experience the joy of watching a child's face light up as they receive the gift you chose especially for them.

Alternatively, you can volunteer your time and skills to help organize our unique carnival. We're always in need of hands-on deck to set up games, distribute food, and create a magical atmosphere for our military families.
