A Cause-Driven Product

All proceeds from the sale of this beautiful ornament go to Operation Santa Claus. The Operation Santa Claus campaign provides a complete holiday dinner for thousands of less fortunate families in the Trib Total Media's service area. Children in those families also receive an age-appropriate storybook as well. Volunteers handle all the work. They organize and publicize the fund drive, collect new and 'gently used' books, pack the grocery bags and deliver them to more than two dozen Salvation Army units and corps which handle the distribution. Generous donors throughout the community make the campaign possible. Individuals and families, school groups, service clubs and business organizations all pitch in to help. Donors may choose to have their names listed in the newspaper, along with a brief message, or they may give anonymously. In 2010, we packed more than 6,500 bags that were sent to thousands of families. This year, Operation Santa Claus hopes to raise more than $100,000, enough to deliver a holiday meal to families within a five-county area. Find out more about Operation Santa Claus
