Every October, Operation Sunshine, a non-profit organization of the Observer-Dispatch, kicks off its holiday campaign to raise $65,000 to assist partner agencies in providing food, clothing, and toys to families in need. No child should be without during the holidays and this community has been gracious enough to continue that tradition every year.

All donations stay local and every dollar you donate goes directly to providing food, clothing, and toys to those in need. There two ways to donate. Go online to opsun.org and hit “donate” or call Michele at (315) 792-5003.

Help us reach our goal before Christmas and consider donating to Operation Sunshine today!

If you are a family in need of assistance, please go online to opsun.org/register and fill out an application form from now until November 29, 2019.

Thank you to the following partners who help during our Holiday Campaign:

WIBX First News with Keeler, Spectrum, Toys for Tots U.S. Marine Corp, New York Sash Teddy Bear Toss, WUTR Eyewitness News, and Utica Mack.
