Give the gift of hope this holiday season

For many, the holidays are some of the best times of the year, yet for some in our community, these celebrations are a reminder of serious financial hardship. If there is one thing that is certain, the community of Happy Valley is generous and eager to help those less fortunate experience a holiday season filled with hope. That’s where Operation Santa comes in. An annual toy and food drive, Operation Santa is coordinated through the efforts of firefighters at Clackamas Fire District #1.

Operation Santa will be collecting toys and non-perishable food items at City Hall from noon-6pm on Sunday, Dec. 5. Those interested in contributing are asked to bring non-perishable food and/or new, unwrapped toys. Staff and volunteers will collect your donations at a designated area in the City Hall parking lot, which will be accessible via drive thru or walk up.  *Please note, the City’s Tree Lighting event will be taking place between 4-6pm. Operation Santa will continue to accept donations throughout that event.
