We proudly announce that the 15th Annual Operation Holiday Cheer is underway!
Operation Holiday Cheer is a partnership between the City of Citrus Heights, the Citrus Heights Police Department, local service clubs, businesses, community members, and local schools. This program is designed to help Citrus Heights Community families who have experienced hardship over the last year. To date, we have helped over 630 families, including 1,302 adults and 2,625 children!
How is Operation Holiday Cheer Funded?
Operation Holiday Cheer is entirely funded by generous donations from people like you. Additionally, because of our partnerships with different assets throughout the city, we are able to provide stockings full of goodies to each child referred into the program, basic toiletries, household products, and a food basket with a traditional holiday dinner for each family.
How are families entered into Operation Holiday Cheer for consideration for adoption?
This year, Operation Holiday Cheer will be "adopting a block" within the city for adoption. CHPD is partnering with City Life Sayonara Center to spread some Holiday Cheer for families in need along that block.
How can I help with Operation Holiday Cheer?
We are currently seeking community involvement to adopt families. Lists of items for the families will be provided if you wish to adopt a family. Please click the link to the left to submit the adoption form.
I cannot adopt an entire family, but want to donate to Operation Holiday Cheer.
If you would like to make a donation but do not wish to adopt an entire family, we will gladly accept cash, checks (made payable to the City of Citrus Heights - OHC), and gift card donations by mail or in person at the Citrus Heights Police Department, c/o Executive Assistant Samantha Lofas, 6315 Fountain Square Drive, Citrus Heights, CA 95621.
