Who We Are

Operation Christmas Tree is an annual holiday food and toy collection 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 assists over 125 local families each year by providing a non-perishable food hamper, new toys, books and clothing, all matched to the children’s ages, and delivered by local firefighters.  An additional initiative also provides financial support for local fire victims. 

Our History 

Operation Christmas Tree came under the auspices of the Optimist Club of Moore in 1989. At that time, Stan Campbell was the chairman and it became a charitable program. Prior to that, it was run by the Corunna Post Office employees to assist those in need during the holiday season, and has grown into a 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.
