Operation Christmas Spirit
Operation Christmas Spirit
Operation Help A Hero and the St. Johns community hosted the 6th Annual Operation Christmas Spirit Drive. This year, we catered to the Christmas wish lists of 40 Marine Corps families from 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, SOI and CLB 5. The generosity of our community was truly breathtaking! In addition to the $1,000.00 worth of gifts (or more) per family, OHH was able to collect two truckloads (semi!) of furniture and a truck load of general Christmas gifts, given to 5th Marines' battalions, SOI and CLB 5 families. Here's an Orange County Register article highlighting our very own Christy Wrightson.
