Operation Christmas

Applications for the 2021 Operation Christmas program have officially closed as of Dec. 9th. If you did not submit an application and are in need of gifts, please contact our Fall River or Taunton office ASAP for more information. Contact info for each office can be found on the bottom of this web page.

During the winter season, bills can become a burden quickly. Between costly winter heating, visits to the doctor, or medicine costs, it can be hard for families to provide for their kids at Christmastime.

Through the generosity of our community and local organizations and the hard work of our dedicated volunteers, our Operation Christmas program raises money and collects donations to buy and distribute toys and clothing to in-need families in the Fall River and Taunton areas to help provide a traditional Christmas experience for children aged 12 and younger.

Program Details:

Eligibility: Custodial parents of children may apply. Must reside in the Greater Fall River and Greater Taunton areas to be eligible.
