50 Years of "Operation Santa Claus"

Fifty years ago, we started “Operation Santa Claus” as a way for the CIA family to donate new toys to disadvantaged children during the holidays. Since our formal collaboration with the Marine Corps’ “Toys for Tots” program in 2000, the Agency’s toy collection has grown each year.

The 2018 Operation Santa Claus campaign was a great success. The Agency collected 40 boxes of toys that will be gifted to children in need this year.

On December 7th, Deputy Director Vaughn Bishop and his wife Marian Bishop presented the collected toys to Brigadier General William Seely III and the Marine Corps Reserve in support of the Marines’ Toys for Tots campaign.

The Marines thanked the CIA for their collections, mentioning that we continue to be one of the largest donors to the Toys for Tots foundation in the Washington, DC area.
