Operation Santa Claus received a special donation on Tuesday.
St. Mary’s School in Manchester chose to present the charity with all the proceeds from their Great Pumpkin Chase Race – a total of twenty-seven hundred dollars.
Tifany Meyer says it means a lot to St. Mary’s to be able to support such a great cause.
Operation Santa Claus is a local holiday program that provides Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in Delaware County. Longtime volunteer Pat Becker says every dollar will help.
And Becker says receiving the donation from St. Mary’s students makes it even more special.
St. Mary’s presented the donation to Operation Santa Claus during a school assembly Tuesday.
