For nearly 40 years The Salvation Army, along with the National Guard and many other supporters, has helped share the joy of the holiday season with thousands of children in rural Alaska. With the Christmas season fast approaching, your support at home in Alaska is greatly needed.
This year, Operation Santa is scheduled to visit the communities of Emmonak, November 1, and Gambell, November 30. The entire community gathers for the celebration, singing carols, watching local dance groups perform and even sharing ice cream sundaes together! For some of the children, this is their first time visiting with Santa.In addition to a Christmas gift, Santa hands out new backpacks, hygiene supplies, new school supplies, fresh fruit and books.
