Since 1961, Operation Holiday has made holidays brighter for families in need. The program distributes nonperishable food, fresh food vouchers, winter wear and blankets to low-income families and individuals. Children 14 and under receive gifts through a partnership with the Marines’ Toys for Tots program. In 2012, Operation Holiday launched the Teen2Teen program to provide gifts to teens ages 15 through 17.
With the help of many congregations, businesses, organizations, and individuals, the 2013 Operation Holiday served 11,706 people.
