Operation Hope 2021
We are extremely grateful for and humbled by the generosity of our community. Support for this year's Operation Hope came from donors and volunteers across Summit and Wasatch counties.
On December 4 in Wasatch County, participants received gift cards of $75 per child so parents could shop for their children’s gifts in plenty of time for shipping and wrapping. On December 14 and 15 in Park City, we held our traditional “toy store” event with oodles of toys, books, winter clothing, and more for registered families.
710 Families, 1,780 Children, and 250 Volunteers

Christmas Meals and Food Drives
We can't forget to celebrate the efforts of some very special folks who provided Christmas meals for local families and food for our food pantry.
The Agnew family of Park City once again led the effort to rally 200 volunteers, comprised of "Especially for Athletes" students and their families, who provided 600 meals for Operation Hope families in both Summit and Wasatch counties!
The Park City High School National Honor Society food drive was a huge (and heavy) success! These amazing seniors collected 30,000 lbs. of non-perishable food AND loaded it into our pantry storage. Way to go!!
