Operation Christmas has been serving Veterans for over 10 years. What we do is collect clothing for veterans living at the Great Lakes Naval Center VA Hospital in North Chicago. Illinois. We organize a holiday celebration including entertainment, clothing distribution and a holday dinner. It is a fun day that is done with dignity and respect for these heroes who are in need of warm clothing, loving kindness and recognition for their service during the holiday season which can be a lonely and depressing time for many. We are a group of volunteers who do this with no fanfare. The entertainment is all volunteers and includes a high school singing group, ROTC troops and people who simply come every year to help out. It is a labor of love and we will do this every year becasue the Veterans are our heroes and they have earned whatever we do for them.
