Operation Santa Claus

Thank you for supporting the 2020 Operation Santa Claus season!  Since the 1950s, Operation Santa has provided gift bags of new hygiene items to people in the Upstate who live with chronic mental illness and who live in poverty or experience homelessness. Your donations provide dignity and hope to individuals who may often feel alone and voiceless.

We need you!  We are currently collecting items for this year's gift-giving and would love to include you or your organization as a collecting partner.

If you would like to drop off unwrapped items or a cash donation, please feel free to do so at our administrative offices located at 429 North Main Street, Suite 2 in downtown Greenville.  Items may be delivered to the MHAGC offices between 8 AM and 4 PM Monday through Friday in November or in early December.

Would you like to organize a collection drive at your business, church, faith-based organization, or neighborhood?   Print on the items in the toolkit below.  And please feel free to reach out to us at 864-467-3344 x4010 if we can answer questions or arrange a pickup of items before the collection deadline.
