Operation Hope 2019
Serving a combined total of nearly 1,670 children with toys, clothing, personal care items and Christmas meals, Operation Hope 2019 was a big success!
See below for highlights from the Park City and Heber Valley events.
Park City & Summit County
Operation Hope 2019 in Park City and Summit County served over 800 children! Their parents were able to choose from a wide variety of toys, winter accessories, books, and personal care items generously donated by local businesses and individuals. This year we were joined by Kimball Arts Center who hosted a craft to keep the kids busy while parents selected the gifts, which were wrapped by volunteers.
Thanks to the help of Wasatch County wards, stakes, churches, schools, and the Wasatch Community Foundation, 2019 was our second year of holding an Operation Hope event in the Heber Valley. This year, we served 800 children in the Heber Valley! The parents of these children received Christmas meals, toys, personal care items, clothing, winter accessories, and books, all of which was gift wrapped by volunteers.
We’d like to thank the 450 volunteers from both Summit and Wasatch counties who made this event possible by giving of their time and energy. We would also like to thank the 30+ businesses and individuals who hosted toy drives throughout the holiday season.
