Operation Santa

December 20, 2008


The holidays will be here soon, and ROOF Community Services needs your support to bring the magic of Christmas to Rochester children.

The Santa Store is stocked with new clothing and toys for children of all ages. Eligible parents select one new clothing item and one new toy for each child in their family. Volunteers are available to wrap the gifts. While the parents are in the Santa Store, young children are in the Christmas Party, where they can sit on Santa’s lap, have a snack, and play games.

Operation Santa Adoption matches eligible children with groups, families, or businesses that would like to purchase gifts for all the children in a household. We provide to the donor group the basic information about the age, gender, and special wishes of the children. Gifts may be delivered to the family (if the family agrees) or brought to ROOF. Families who have been adopted will pick up their gifts on Operation Santa day.

How you can help

r      You can adopt a family by completing the form on the next page and returning it to ROOF as soon as possible but no later than December 5th. We will match you with a family and notify you as quickly as we can.

r      You can purchase new clothing, toys and gift items for newborns through high school, and bring them to ROOF beginning November 24th but no later than December 19th.
