Deployed Troops and Their Families
16 Years of Serving Our Deployed Troops
Started in 2003 by the members of VFW Post 12002, our primary mission is to use funds raised from both private and corporate donors to express gratitude to, and support for deployed troops fighting overseas and their families here at home.
All administrative duties are performed completely by volunteers who are all members of VFW Post 12002. NOBODY with Operation Santa gets paid and 100% of the monies raised goes directly to deployed troops and their families.
Since inception, we’ve raised nearly $300,000. That money has been spent making certain that those fighting for our freedoms know that we appreciate their sacrifices and that we are 100% behind them, their families, AND their mission.
So far, we’ve been able to touch the lives of over 5,000 Georgia-based troops and their families; 709 last year, alone. From Christmas gifts for their kids, to repairing broken cars, to paying late mortgages or even buying groceries, we honor our heroes with hope and help.
