Operation Santa Clothes

paypal_donateThis year, CSR has clothed another group of children in our flagship Operation Santa Clothes program and has now clothed over 35,000 kids at the West Covina K-mart store! We have also been able to provide over $50,000 in scholarships in seven high schools. OSC began in 1994 serving 73 children from one Covina school. The project focuses not only on provided clothing, but giving self esteem, character development, and a sense of caring to these kids. You can help with a tax deductible donation here. See our Santa Clothes page for more information.
