Get Help - Operation Holiday

Each year HumanKind Ministries distributes basic necessities such as food, kids coats, and blankets to those who need it most through Operation Holiday. Children 14 and under receive toy presents through our partnership with U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.


We are looking forward to once again operating drive-thru distribution Dec. 15-18. Stay tuned for more details coming soon.


Applications for Operation Holiday 2021 will be accepted online only this year from November 1 through November 30. Stay tuned right here for more information coming soon.
