Operation Holiday Homework rewards local youth for putting education first

Help make the holidays brighter for youth in our community by supporting the Aliso Viejo Branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Capistrano Valley’s Operation Holiday Homework program.

The annual program rewards club members for putting education first.  Children earn points by remaining productive during the club’s daily homework hour.  Points can then be used to “shop” for Christmas gifts for their families.   For some families, these gifts are the only presents under the tree.

Community members can help by dropping off a new, unwrapped gift or gift card for kids and adults at City Hall, located at 12 Journey, or at the Iglesia Park Community Center, 24671 Via Iglesia, through December 6. See a list of gift ideas for families here.

For more information, contact Aliso Viejo Branch Director Melissa Scanlon at mscanlon@bgccapo.com or 949-699-2552.
