A Bit About Us

Supporting families since 2002!

Operation Santa: Idaho is a project started in 2002 by Karen Cameron and Lucy Meredith. Over the years we have helped over 1500 kids and 800 families have a brighter Christmas. We provide personal gifts for the children, blankets, jackets, hats, gloves, family movie baskets, clothes, shoes, socks, underwear, household staples and a full Christmas dinner. Each family chosen gets to make Christmas crafts and ornaments, decorate cookies for Santa and visit with the Jolly Old Elf himself. We celebrate on December 24th, giving up time with our own families to make this happen. It is a tradition we hope continues for many, many years to come. The families we support are local and attend schools in Caldwell, Idaho. If you are interested in donating to this amazing cause, whether financially or with your time, let us know. Just an idea of donation costs - we spend around $60 a child on toys. If you know of a business or individual who would like to help, feel free to pass on our contact info.
