Operation Santa

FamiliesFirst Network and Northwest Florida Health Network serve children who have experienced trauma, abuse or neglect in Northwest Florida. Operation Santa is an annual giving program to help children in foster care. Together with our community partners and local faith community we help 2,000 children celebrate the magic of Christmas. As one of Operation Santa’s helpers, you can make Christmas special for children in our local community. Without the generosity of donors like you, most of these children in our care would not receive any gifts during the holidays.

Here are two ways you can help:

  1. Sponsor a child*, and shop for their Christmas wishes. In the first week of November, our team will provide you with a holiday wish list, which will include a child’s three wishes for Christmas gifts with special requests or instructions. At this time, we’ll also share details about donation drop-off dates, as well as the workshop location most convenient for you. *AT THIS TIME, SANTA’S ELVES HAVE STARTED SHARING CHRISTMAS WISH LISTS WITH DONORS. WE ARE STILL IN NEED OF YOUR SUPPORT! WE ARE ASKING ANYONE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING IN OPERATION SANTA TO PLEASE GIVE A MONETARY DONATION TO HELP US SUPPORT THE MANY CHILDREN COMING INTO CARE BETWEEN NOW AND CHRISTMAS.
  2. Give a monetary donation, and we will shop for you!
