Operation: Lone Star Santa - 2017

2017 Registration for Operation: Lone Star Santa


We're very excited to announce that for this our ninth year of Operation Lone Star Santa we'll be partnering with Toys for Tots. We'll still be doing a toy drive for the rest of the holiday season, as we do every year. You can expect to see the Toys for Tots collection boxes at all of our events until the final Christmas party to distribute the toys to the parents of the children. Also, veteran families that are on the border and do not meet the needs assessment that Toys for Tots uses will still be eligible to receive toys when signing up through Lone Star Veterans Association. We will also have a Christmas Party to distribute the toys to the families in need and celebrate together. LSVA will provide stockings with additional gifts for the registered families including hand made gifts, sweets, and other items collected from our members.

If you know a family in need this holiday season please share this page with them and have them sign up sooner than later. Please take the survey below to register your child for Operation: Lone Star Santa.

Until we are full, if you have issues registering please contact Connie Gray @ connie.gray@lonestarveterans.org.
