Operation Santa Claus to Benefit from Static Christmas Parade


The donations that were collected at Manchester’s Static Christmas Parade a couple weeks ago have been presented to Operation Santa Claus. Area residents who attended the Manchester Window Walk were invited to vote for their favorite stationary parade float by putting some money in their jar. Parade Committee Chair Rob Edwards and Chamber Director Jack Klaus recently presented the total donation amount – 235 dollars – to Operation Santa Claus’ Chairs Pat Becker and Jo Ellen Holtorf.

Operation Santa Claus uses the donations to purchase clothing, toys and other gifts for area children. Becker says it was another great year for the program.

Well over 100 Delaware County families were helped by Operation Santa Claus this year.
