In 2017 the Dream Center will hold its 18th Annual Spirit of Love Operation 400 Food and Toy Distribution. This Christmas tradition started on a small scale with only about a dozen families receiving help during the Christmas season and has developed to a large scale operation providing 400 families with a 50 pound box of food and toys for kids. This is the Dream Center’s largest event of the year and will continue to grow each year as the need increases.
This is an all hands on deck operation as many church and school groups, as well as individuals and businesses, give of their time and finances to put together an unforgettable event for the Christmas season. The impact this even has on the community is profound as every year we see more and more lives touched. Join us this year to put together another incredible event!
3 ways you can join us this year:
- Volunteer: There are many opportunities to volunteer with a variety of tasks including manual work, gift wrapping, and personal interaction with those attending. We will find the perfect place for you!
- Donate Toys: Each year over 1,000 toys are given to families in need for Christmas. Donations of new toys are appreciated in order to reach our goal of 1,000+.
- Financial Support: The budget for this event is $7,500 which includes purchasing toys, food, and other needed supplies such as boxes and packaging materials. Funds are raised through community partners like you.
Operation 400 will be taking place this year on December 10th, 2017!
Volunteers are needed for the pre-event packing day Saturday, December 9th as well as the event date (10th).
