OPERATION PURPLE SANTA

The objective of Operation Purple Santa is to locate, qualify, and select one or more Veterans and their families for adoption for the current Holiday Season plus working with the family or families throughout the full calendar year following the Christmas Holidays. This would involve working with the family/families at special times throughout the year mainly birthdays, special events, help with school supplies and emergency situations within the Chapters means.  It is not intended to take the place of the Veteran and spouses responsibility of providing for their families. Criteria for selecting a family is as follows: The family must be in need. The family must have at least one child.  There must be no evidence of any abuse of drugs, alcohol ,or tobacco.  Obviously, there must be no evidence of family abuse of any kind. There must be positive evidence that the Veteran and spouse is making every effort to support their family morally and financially.

Purple Santa also works with other Vets in need. Purple Santa also works with Safe Place collecting toys for kids and other needed items.
