Give comfort and joy by contributing to Operation Elf and Santa’s Sharing
By Patte Smith
Now is the perfect time to offer struggling families and individuals a happy holiday season. The Crisis Center in Castle Rock is asking the community to support Operation Elf, a program that matches families with sponsors who help provide a Christmas to families who are financially and emotionally in need during the holidays.
If interested in participating in Operation Elf, call Megan O’Brien directly at 303-688-1094 or email her at email@example.com. She is available to help prospective sponsors to complete the sponsorship form.
Santa’s Sharing is the holiday adopt-a-family program of the Douglas/Elbert Task Force. The program organizes sponsors for current client families who have shown ongoing need and are referred by a case manager for Santa’s Sharing.
Groups and individuals can sponsor one or more families for Santa’s Sharing or donate new toys to the Task Force’s holiday toy chest. Please visit www.detaskforce.org to download a sponsor application or request one via email at SantasDETF@aol.com.
