Operation Christmas Stocking

Operation Christmas Stocking and Sub-for-Santa Stockings:

Operation Give, an organization that works throughout the year to support American Troops and their families back home, is carrying out this project. This is our 13th year of Operation Christmas Stocking and you can all help us reach our goal of stuffing and delivering 10,000 stuffed Christmas Stockings to the Troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, South Korea and to the children of deployed soldiers at home in the United States. 

Donating is easy: Donate online or send us a check for any amount you would like to donate to support this cause.

Helping is easy: There are many ways you can help. You can make your own stuffed Christmas stockings, you can send stuffing items to our warehouse in Salt Lake City, you can take part in stuffing the stockings at the warehouse during our events or you can get involved in the actual delivery effort to military families or you can create Gift bags or decorate shoe boxes.

For the 13th year running Operation Give is providing you an opportunity to show your support through giving the gift of Christmas to our men and women serving in the military and to their family members back home.

This is one way for you to communicate your support, love and appreciation for all our men and women in the armed forces and for their families waiting for their safe return.

Stuff your own stockings, or send in items to be stuffed into stockings at our warehouse.

We need your help. Contact Paul Holton at Operation Give to find out how you might help, email Paul at wigglesholton@yahoo.com

Now is the time to give of your time and resources to help make this possible.

Thanks so much.
