|About||OCLF Partners with Community Donors and Law Enforcement to deliver gifts to disadvantaged children, so they have a positive memory of Law Enforcement and Christmas.|
|Mission||Community fostering community during the Christmas holiday.|
Dean DuVall had a goal in December 2016 to help children in the area who were going to have a very lean Christmas, if they got a Christmas at all. He began looking for someone to help him. Dean made some phone calls gaining donors to support his vision, and found local community partners who confidentially identified children in the area needing Christmas support.
Through donations received the community partners and volunteers bought gifts from the children lists and wrapped them to be delivered. The local law enforcement generously donated their time, helping OCLF deliver presents on Christmas Eve to over 100 children in Park County. With the success of his idea, Dean decided to start a non-profit organization to deliver gifts each year.
This year Operation Christmas Lights Foundation is serving Park County again with the hope of eventually expanding OCLF state wide. However, with this expansion we also need to increase our pool of donors and get more communities involved. With that in mind donations from Park County residents goes to children in need in Park County and, if donations come in from other counties they can be spent to expand to those areas or where the donor wants the money to go.
