The Elite OC | Young Professionals Giving Back hosts events on the 3rd Thursday of every month. Please mark your calendars and Save The Dates for the rest of our events in 2021!
Please join us on Thursday, December 2nd from 6-8pm for in-person networking at Muldoon's Irish Pub. While this event is free to members & non-members alike, we ask that you consider giving back to this month's charity partner: Operation Santa Claus with new toys for kids!
Operation Santa Claus is a County of Orange Board of Supervisors approved program, and is the only official County holiday toy drive. Last year this program distributed over 39,000 new toys and gifts, bringing joy and a message of hope to our most vulnerable children in Orange County who might otherwise have gone without. This would not be possible without the generosity and collaborative effort of County of Orange employees, churches, businesses and individuals in the community who play an important role in collecting toys.
The Operation Santa Claus program is coordinated by the Orange County Social Services Agency, with support from community volunteers. Approximately 2,500 hours annually are graciously given by volunteers from County agencies and the community. These volunteers have been the backbone of Operation Santa Claus since its inception. It has greatly expanded over the past several decades. What began as a small effort to meet the needs of a handful of children in 1962 has become a major event for the community. Each year gifts and monetary donations are selflessly donated at pickup sites throughout the county.
