Tuesday was the deadline to drop off gifts for Operation Santa Claus. The OSC headquarters on Stickney Avenue in Concord were buzzing as people dropped off carloads … truckloads … even busloads (in the case of Bishop Brady High School) of gifts. Volunteers now have a week to sort through, and double-check, all of those donations to make sure they go to the right place.
The gifts will be delivered to DHHS district offices all over the state next Thursday. As the process draws to a close, we again need to thank everyone involved in the program. From the DHHS caseworkers to the volunteers to the people who sponsor the children, know that this couldn’t happen without you. Thank you.
