Chrysta 10 min. 15 min.

Every Christmas Eve, a group of volunteers for Operation Santa North Hollywood get together to deliver christmas wishes to children in the Valley communities. Some families opt to pick up their gifts and take a photo with Santa and his elves.

After speaking with many family members over the years, we learned that food insecurity is an issue our families face in addition to the inability to buy gifts for their children.

2014 will be the second Christmas Eve where we will be providing food and gifts to our network of families.  And, we still need your help!
