Operation Santa Claus
Underway at OCWD
Operation Santa Claus is underway at the Orange County Water District and is an opportunity to bring smiles to the faces of the underprivileged in Orange County during the holiday season.

For more than 20 years, OCWD Staff Accountant Donna Pike has volunteered to head up the District's effort to support the annual holiday clothing and toy drive, which benefits the County of Orange Operation Santa Claus program.

Operation Santa Claus provides gifts to children who have been placed in foster care, as well as to low-income seniors and adults with disabilities who are served by the County of Orange Social Services Agency, Health Care Agency, Probation Department, Child Support Services, and OC Community Resources.

“It’s an occasion to help the abandoned, neglected, abused, and disabled in our county who need some tender attention and gifts to make their holidays a little brighter,” says Donna.

Angel tags will be hung in the OCWD reception area between November 16 and December 18. Employees and visitors can choose a tag, fulfill the holiday wish and place the unwrapped item under the holiday tree.

Thanks to the generous support of Donna and OCWD staff and guests, hundreds of people in Orange County will have a happier holiday.
