Let's Join Forces for Operation Santa

Who Do We Benefit

The heart of Operation Santa beats for the military families who sacrifice so much throughout the year. Military spouses and children may not wear a uniform, but they serve our Nation in many ways and their sacrifices often go unrecognized. Whether they're struggling through deployments, financial difficulties, or other challenges, our event provides a reprieve filled with joy and festivity and helps them to feel the genuine appreciation of our community for THEIR Service. Every year, heartwarming testimonials flood in, attesting to the profound impact our event has on military families. From children receiving their dream presents to parents moved to tears by the generosity shown, the stories of “the Magic Carpet” where civilian & military families meet to open gifts are countless.

How Your Business Can

We offer eight different levels of sponsorship, each providing unique benefits and opportunities for your business. From tree sponsorship to volunteering opportunities for your team, there are numerous ways you can contribute to the success of Operation Santa.
