Operation Christmas

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 to help provide a traditional Christmas experience for children aged 12 and younger.

Program Details:

Eligibility: Custodial parents of children may apply.

Documentation Needed: ID and social security cards.

Fall River Application Process: Applicants from the Greater Fall River area may apply by filling out an application at our Griffin Street location. Must bring necessary documentation and show proof of guardianship for children.

Taunton Application Process: Applicants from the Greater Taunton area must pick up an application from our Taunton Green office, fill it out completely, have it signed/verified by an authorized agency (WIC, DTA, Schools, Pediatricians, etc.), and return the application back to the office. Once a completed application has been received, distribution information will be given out.
