Operation Santa: Granting Holiday Wishes

The 20th Annual Operation Santa pledge drive is coming up! WPGU is gathering holiday wishes from children right here in our community who may need a little help having Santa visit them this year.

For the next month, we’ll be working towards a goal of raising $2000 to purchase the wish lists of over 60 children at the Crisis Nursery and Parent Wonders of Rantoul. All of the proceeds brought in for Operation Santa go directly into purchasing gifts for these families and delivering them at a holiday party.
