Three nonprofit groups will come together for the Operation Holiday Day of Giving on Saturday.
InterFaith Ministries, Catholic Charities and the Marine Corps’ Toys for Tots programs will accept donations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Dillons store at 7707 E. Central, at Central and Rock Road.
The three groups urge the community to donate non-perishable food items, new toys and blankets, new or gently used coats, hats, mittens and scarves or cash to benefit the 53rd annual Operation Holiday assistance program.
The group hopes to serve 14,000 people this year.
Donations will be distributed Dec. 19, 20 and 21 to those who have filed an application. Any food items remaining after distribution will be donated to Catholic Charities’ Our Daily Bread food pantry and to the Inter-Faith Inn and Ti’Wiconi Safe Haven homeless shelters.
