Operation Santa is Citizen Support for America's Military only project.


Since 2005 we have shipped 210,722 stockings to our troops!

Names will be taken starting Oct 1, 2016

Thanks to your help, Operation Santa 2015 was a huge success!  We were able to send over 6,000 Christmas stockings filled with comfort items to all branches of the military and K-9 units.  These went to our deployed troops in places such as Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Korea and even to carriers off the coast of Afghanistan.  Since 2005 Operation Santa has shipped 210,722 stockings to our men, women and K-9 serving our country overseas.  We are still receiving many notes from the troops that these stockings touched.  We could not have done it without your help!
Looking ahead to 2016, we are changing a few items. We would like to send 5,000 stockings, and we already have 4000 stockings sewn and ready to send!   We are also revamping our wish list a bit so please keep checking our website for updates through the year.  Watch for our new list of wanted (and needed) items.
Once again, thank you so much for helping support our troops!    Remember, it is the least we can do for their sacrifices.
Chris Metz
President, Operation Santa
