Happy Holidays! We wish you all a wonderful December, a safe and happy New Year. We look forward to ringing in 2023 with a renewed sense of hope and bright outlook for a fabulous and fulfilling year ahead.

We're overjoyed to be able to share that this holiday season we will adopt 280 families through our Adopt-a-Family program and bring Christmas to 1,000 more children through our community Toy Table! It may be cold outside, but we are toasty on the inside, overflowing with gratitude for our incredible donors. We celebrate you and your generous, kind hearts!

The 6th Annual Operation Santa Claus was an incredible success! 25 families were adopted and got to watch Santa and Mrs. Claus arrive by plane. Spending the morning in an airport hangar that was transformed into a winter wonderland, we loved watching children visit with Santa, play games and enjoy fabulous food. A huge thank you to Reno Tahoe International Airport, Atlantic Aviation, Reno Tahoe Aviation Group, and the many airlines, airport vendors and small plane pilots who adopted families and contributed to the tremendous success of the event.

Head over to our Instagram and Facebook pages to see all the pictures and videos of the of the work happening here in our “workshop” (aka conference room) by our very own “elves” (aka staff). We are so excited to be part of this season of giving by delivering gifts, it is truly wonderful to see the ways your donations are directly impacting the lives of hundreds of families.
Your time and efforts to drop off toys, pjs, and purchased gift cards to make a difference in our community will make for hundreds of unforgettable Christmases this year. Thank you, donors!

With our very best wishes,

Kim Young
Chief Executive Officer
