Operation Santa Claus is a holiday gift program that is supported entirely by charitable donations from the citizens of Orange County. Last year, over 40,000 gifts were distributed to needy children, teens and seniors right here in Orange County. We would like to invite the students of Chaparral to participate in Operation Santa Claus this year by bringing a new, unwrapped toy/gift or clothing item to one of the collection boxes in the front office. The toy drive will be from Monday, December 4 through Friday, December 15. All gifts are tax deductible. Items especially needed this holiday are gifts for teens (clothes, cosmetics, watches, sports equipment, etc.) and gifts for infants and seniors. Every shopper is allowed to choose one gift and one clothing item so clothing items for all ages are always in demand. We hope that you will share our excitement about this opportunity to share some holiday magic with children who might otherwise not have a special holiday. Thanks for your support of this most worthy cause in this season of giving.
