Operation Holiday Heroes is taking applications for anyone who may need Christmas assistance this year.
Operation Holiday Heroes is a countywide collaboration to assure that every child and family in need in Beaufort and Jasper counties has toys at Christmas.
This year, United Way of the Lowcountry is proud to partner with Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, The Agape Family Life Center Hardeeville, Antioch Educational Center, Bluffton Self Help, The Deep Well Project, Love House Ministries and The Salvation Army of the Lowcountry to bring the magic of Christmas to families in the Lowcountry.
To participate in Operation Holiday Heroes, each family must register for assistance at one of the participating nonprofits. A complete listing of Beaufort and Jasper county registration dates, times and locations is available in English and Spanish at https://uwlowcountry.org/santa/.
Since the 1950s, United Way of the Lowcountry has been working to create a better life for the residents of Beaufort and Jasper counties. Our focus is on protecting services vital to the immediate basic needs of the most vulnerable members of our community.
Each year, United Way raises funds through its annual campaign, special events and grants. Just as funds are raised locally, United Way funds stay local. Visit www.uwlowcountry.org for more information.
