The deadline is approaching for local families who would like to sign up for Operation Santa Claus.
Operation Santa Claus is a volunteer-based program that helps provide Christmas gifts for Delaware County families who could use a little assistance. They try to make sure kids of all ages – from unborn up to 18 years old – have the necessities of warm clothes and something a little extra.
That’s volunteer Pat Becker, who says any Delaware County families interested in making a request should contact the Operation New View office in Manchester by this Friday, November 1st.
The families will be able to pick up the gifts on December 7th.
Operation Santa Claus is in its 37th year. Last year, the program provided Christmas gifts to over three hundred kids throughout Delaware County. And your donations can help – the trees with tags of gift suggestions will start going up on November 11th at Norby’s, Dental Associates and Community Savings Bank in Manchester and Edgewood. New items can be dropped off at the Manchester Chamber and monetary donations can be brought to any Manchester bank or mailed to PO Box 37 in Manchester.
