Operation Santa Claus has a lot on its plate — giving the gift of a holiday meal to thousands of needy Western Pennsylvania families.

Trib Total Media's 2013 campaign will provide a festive and nutritious holiday meal for more than 7,000 local households, with assistance from the Salvation Army and Shop ‘n Save.

Each grocery bag will hold a gift certificate for a meat item of the family's choice, plus scalloped potatoes, stuffing, canned vegetables and fruit, fruit-flavored gelatin, applesauce, bread mix, snack crackers, holiday cookies and hot cocoa.

Each bag will also contain coloring books and crayons for children. The children will also receive new and gently used books.

Shop ‘n Save orders the groceries and crayons and delivers everything to our packing site. Trib Total Media coordinates a team of over 300 dedicated volunteers to pack the groceries and load them into trucks. And, the Salvation Army screens the recipients and delivers the groceries.

Hundreds of volunteers come together to make Operation Santa Claus a success, but the most important help comes from the generosity of Trib Total Media readers — individuals, families and corporate donors fund the project with gifts large and small.

Donation coupons will be published throughout the holiday season, along with lists of donors. Some donors prefer to remain anonymous. Others write a brief message to accompany a mention of their gift. Just $17.25 will pay for a family of four to enjoy a nutritious and delicious holiday dinner this year.

Operation Santa Claus has set a fundraising goal this year of $120,000. Every dollar will be used to help our neighbors in need.

We're putting dinner on the table. Won't you help lend a hand and help us give the gift of a holiday meal? For more information, or to donate online, visit osc.triblive.com.
