Becker and Holtorf Retiring as Operation Santa Claus Co-Chairs

Operation Santa Claus will be changing hands this year.

For 30 years, Pat Becker and JoEllen Holtorf have helped lead this Delaware County program that provides Christmas gifts to families who need a little extra help around the holidays – but Becker says the time has come for new volunteers to take over.

Holtorf says they’ll be turning the reigns over to two new co-chairs.

In the program’s 40th year, Operation Santa Claus will be returning as normal – after a year that wasn’t so normal due to COVID.

We’ll visit with the new co-chairs and share information on this year’s program in the weeks to come here on KMCH.
