Operation Santa has moved to a new website! Please visit us at https://www.operationsantasd.com/ to learn more about Operation Santa!

Our Mission

We are the Rho Pi chapter for Alpha Phi Omega, a co-ed community service fraternity. Our 3 principles are leadership, friendship and service.

Operation Santa is an annual relief program that provides a Christmas for San Diego families who cannot afford it themselves. Our goal is to help as many of these families actually experience a true Christmas by bringing them food, clothing, and gifts!

We accept nominations of families in need from all around San Diego County. You can either nominate your own family or the families of your friends, neighbors, or co-workers. We chose the families most in need from these nominations and we try our best to help them out! 


You can sign up to be an adopter of these nominated families. By adopting, you will be helping a family during the holiday season. You will receive the nominated family's wishlist and from there you can shop for gifts and basic necessities for the family. You will also have the opportunity to contact your adopted family directly and deliver the gifts personally!
