Santa's Workshop Is Busy

Get in the Christmas spirit by donating a gift to a child in need

The memories made on Christmas morning are unlike any other. The magic in anticipation, the rush to open that gift with your name on it and the joy felt between family on that special day is indescribable. Unfortunately, millions of kids around the globe will never experience these moments.

Operation Santa Claus was developed in 1984 to give children in need the beauty of Christmas. Through monetary and item donations, we've had the privileged of helping tens of thousands of kids feel special on Christmas.
