Update: Last day to donate is Monday, December 19, 2022. 


Jes Rodne has been coordinating Cook County's Operation Family Christmas for the past eight years. Operation Family Christmas assists local families who may need a little boost during the holiday season with generous donations from the community.

Although the deadline has passed to fill out an application to be considered, if you're interested in filling an Operation Family Christmas request, Jes says that "once again the Christmas 'wish tags' are now available at local banks. 

If you would like to donate grocery cards, gift cards or miscellaneous items before, please reach out to Rodne at (218)-370-2019, [email protected]

Rodne says: "thank you all for what I assume will be another successful year of helping little ones wake up to a Christmas morning that makes their hearts happy."
