Operation Santa Clothes

Our flagship Operation Santa Clothes program has clothed over 35,000 kids with new clothes! 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 to make a donation or for more information.
