Currituck Countys Operation Santa Claus Gets Under Way
I saw this write up in the Outer Banks Voice and figured with the holiday season right around the corner, this may interest some of you looking for a way to assist local people in need.
Citizens may now apply for holiday assistance through the 2016 Operation Santa Claus for children and adults. The Currituck Department of Social Services is coordinating most of the activities.
There are several ways to help. Families, individuals and groups may:
Donate new toys for children in Currituck County. Contact Lauri Roth with Toys for Tots at 757-328-2816.
Donate food or money for the Food Baskets for the Elderly program. Contact Carla Mebane at 252-232-6039.
Donate money or gift cards for foster children, to be distributed by the foster care staff. Contact Peggy Whitlow at (252) 232-6042.
Sponsor children in Currituck by providing gifts directly to a family. E-mail Dawn Smith with Digger’s Elves or call her at (252) 267-1140. She will also accept donations of new toys.
If you wish to sponsor children and provide gifts, we ask that you make arrangements to meet the family and distribute the gifts directly. You are welcome to meet them at the Department of Social Services.
If you need further assistance, contact Kathy Romm, Social Services director,at (252) 232-3083.
