2018 Operation Santa Claus

Nov 26, 2018 12:35PM ● By Kathleen Maris
Since the 1950s, Operation Santa has provided gift bags of new hygiene items to people in the Upstate who live with chronic mental illness and who live in poverty or experience homelessness. Your donations provide dignity and hope to individuals who may often feel alone and voiceless.

Operation Santa is currently collecting items for this year's gift-giving and would love to include you or your organization as a collecting partner. If you would like to drop off unwrapped items or a cash donation, please feel free to do so at its administrative offices located at 429 North Main Street, Suite 2 in downtown Greenville. Items may be delivered to the MHAGC offices between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday before December 7, 2018.

Items needed: liquid soap, deodorant, mouthwash, socks, lotion, shampoo, razors, bar soap, Kleenex, chapstick, Vaseline, adult coloring books, journals/notepads, pens, etc. 
Please ensure that items are new, full-size (i.e. not sample size), and are unwrapped.

Contact us at with any questions.
