Girls Inc. and Cox Communications Partner for 3rd Annual “Operation Holiday Cheer”

By Montecito Journal   |   November 22, 2022

Girls Inc. of Carpinteria is bringing back their wintery gift-giving event, Operation Holiday Cheer. Launched in 2020 and presented by Cox Communications, this program brings gifts and some holiday spirit to local girls and their families that are experiencing economic hardships resulting from the pandemic. 

“We are proud to host our 3rd Annual Operation Holiday Cheer in partnership with Cox Communications to once again spread holiday cheer for local girls and families and show them we are in their corner,” said Jamie Collins, executive director of Girls Inc. Carpinteria. “We encourage local businesses and community members looking for a way to support those in need this season to join our efforts to make a meaningful difference and ensure all families receive gifts for the holidays.”

With an expected offering of 500 gifts to over 125 families in a special December 10th event, there are three ways to join the operation:

– Giving Tree: Items can be picked and purchased off of the tree in the Girls Inc. office at 5315 Foothill Road.

– Fill the Box: Sign up to bring a holiday box to your business with gift tags that contain a Christmas wish. Employees can take a tag, purchase the item and return to fill the box.

– Purchase a gift from the organization’s Amazon Wish List, which will ship directly to Girls Inc. of Carpinteria.
