Charity of the Month

Our Charity of the Month—Operation Santa Claus has been spreading holiday cheer and collecting toys and handmade stockings for 36 years. By creating partnerships with the Fort Riley community and private organizations, they can ensure that all military children experience the magic of Christmas. 


Operation Santa Claus assists Fort Riley families of E-5 and below during the holiday season by providing thier children, ages 0-18yrs, with two toys, selected by the child or guardian, and a handmade stocking. 


The season officially kicks off with a ribbon cutting ceremony and the arrival of Santa Claus on November 3rd, 2021 at 1600 in Camp Funston, Bldg 1828. 


Hours of operation will be Tuesday - Friday from 0900 - 1600 until December 23rd by appointment only. 


Operation Santa Claus is a 100% volunteer run operation. 


All monetary donations given on behalf of The Fort Riley Spouses Club will be poured back into our Fort Riley soliders and families needing assistance this holiday season—purchasing of more toys, gift wrapping supplies and stockings.  


If you would like to contribute and be part of creating a magical experience for a child this Christmas, Flock a Friend, all proceeds will be donated to Operation Santa Claus—Fort Riley for the month of November. 


Come join us at our Merry, Mistletoe, and Mingle Holiday Fundraiser—bring a toy to be donated to Operation Santa Claus—Fort Riley and receive an opportunity ticket to win amazing gift baskets. 

The FRSC raises funds and awareness for our designated Charity of the Month, promoting the charity across platforms and taking donations online and at monthly events. The Charity of the Month program is designed to help community organizations with point-in-time needs outside the annual grant distribution cycle.

If you would like more information about the program or would like to nominate a charity for our Charity of the Month program, please contact our Community Outreach chairperson or send us a message.
