Who We Are

Operation Christmas Tree is an annual assistance program for local less fortunate families in St. Clair Township Ward 1.  Coordinated by the Optimist Club of Moore volunteers, Operation Christmas Tree is a registered non-profit charity.

Our History 

Operation Christmas Tree was initiated in 1985 as part of the Yule Glow Program by Ken Lavoie (Chairman) Corunna Postmaster.

At that time, approximately 17 families were assisted due to the work of an informal organization put together of the Corunna, Courtright, Brigden and Mooretown Post Offices.  

Upon re-evaluation, a more organized approach was needed. An eight member board was then formed from representatives of local churches, schools, service clubs and youth groups.

Operation Christmas Tree came under the auspices of the Optimist Club of Moore in 1989 and became a charitable program,  and has grown into a valued community event supported by charitable organizations, local businesses, churches, schools and individuals throughout St. Clair Township. Today, we still serve those in need in Ward 1 (Moore) portion of St. Clair Township.
