Operation Santa Claus

The community's need at Christmas is our only creed.

A program that began with a CCC youth group over 60 years ago and now involves several local churches, stores, Forest Hills Schools and other groups to provide toys for children and food for area families who need help at Christmas time.

Operation Santa Claus helped its first two families at Christmas sixty-three years ago. Since that time OSC has cared for families that could use a hand EVERY holiday season (even during the Covid-19 pandemic). Thousands of children and families have been helped. Area churches, schools, and businesses work together to make it all happen!
