Operation Holiday Cheer


Operation Holiday Cheer (OHC) Program


Operation Holiday Cheer is a partnership between the City of Citrus Heights, the Citrus Heights Police Department, local service clubs, businesses, community members, and schools. We are now entering our 13th year of providing assistance to Citrus Heights families who have experienced a hardship over the last year.  

OHC is entirely funded by generous donations from people like you. We are currently seeking community involvement to adopt families and to donate much needed items such as gifts, food boxes, gift cards, household supplies, and new, unwrapped toys. To sign up to donate or adopt, click the link on the left to complete an interest form.

Families who benefit from our program must be nominated by someone else - neighbors, friends, counselors, teachers, etc.  Self-referrals are not accepted. To refer a family in need, please click the link on the left to complete a referral application.

Gift drop off is by appointment only. Adopters, sign up here to drop off your gifts on Tuesday, December 14th!
