Operation Santa Claus

OSC - begins its 4th year!

We collect donations, stockings, dvds and more - than ship them overseas to soldiers away from thier families for the holidays. We also send packages home to the families to give them a little extra treat while their loved ones are away.

Last year blew me out of the water with all the stockings and donations sent to the soldiers and families back home! We truly appreciate all efforts to make this a success and look forward to this years Operation Santa Claus.

You can send anything on the suggested list, FULL stockings with a note inside from you, Buildabear gift certificate, BuildaBear items, Letters of encouragement, letters/picture from the little ones (let me know if you have a classroom that would love to do this!)… Email me for my mailing address if you would like to send your donations by snailmail - aserpe@mchsi.com

We are working with BuildaBear this year to send bears to the kids at home waiting for their loves ones to come home safely. *More information to come

Everything will be shipped out November 23rd so that it arrives in time!
