Thanks to the support of our generous donors, we currently have all children sponsored. As the holidays approach, additional children will come into foster care. To ensure their holiday is special too, please consider giving a monetary donation so that we can quickly shop for gifts for them. You can donate directly online by clicking here. You can also make a check made payable to FamiliesFirst Network-Operation Santa and mail it to Baptist Health Care Foundation, P.O. Box 17500, Pensacola, FL 32522.
If you are interested in shopping for general toys, we have set up an Amazon Wish List to shop for popular toys. By shopping from this list, items will be shipped directly to our office. Please include your name and mailing address on the gift receipt to receive a tax-exempt letter.
Operation Santa is FamiliesFirst Network's annual Christmas toy drive that seeks to benefit nearly 2,200 local children this year who have experienced abuse or neglect. This drive brings joy to their Christmas holiday and reminds them that their community cares for them.
For more information regarding Operation Santa, please contact Michelle Giordano, Community Relations Manager, at 850.860.4259 or Michelle.Giordano@bhcpns.org
