Their annual drive to bring holiday cheer to our Military community begins in December.

DONATE TOYS & GIFTS: Ventura County Military Collaborative, VCMilC is able to make so many families’ Christmases “merry & bright” because of all the toys that are donated for the event. Will you consider donating some new, unwrapped toys & gifts to our next Operation Snowflake? Some ideas include stuffed animals, board games, arts & craft supplies as well as Amazon & iTunes gift cards (for the teens that attend). Toys & gifts are collected on Friday, December 15th from 0830-1800 Please e-mail us at info@vcmilc.org for drop-off location and to answer any questions.

VOLUNTEER: Ventura County Military Collaborative, VCMilC, needs volunteers to help plan Operation Snowflake in the days and weeks leading up to the event. Once the big day comes around, its all hands on deck with volunteers handling crowd control, gift distribution, and more.

Become a Sponsor: Operation Snowflake is made possible by the many generous donations from our corporate event sponsors (recognized below). *Your donation is tax deductible.

    I agree that the name is unfortunate AT THIS TIME! When this program started, it was an excellent word for this endeavor but the picture it can easily conjure today isn’t flattering!

    May be a virtuous endeavor, but can’t they come up with a better name than “snowflake?” I just get this mental image of a college student that needs a “safe place.”
