Since 1985, the Peterborough Rotary Club’s Operation Santa hosts an annual gift drive and inviting neighbors to help make the holidays bright for the area’s children in need.  The community can make this year’s program a success by purchasing gifts of clothing and toys for children of the many families that are struggling to make ends meet this year.
By mid November of each year, Operation Santa Posters will be posted in many retail and business locations throughout the area:  New Hampshire Ball Bearing, InfoGroup, RiverMead, ConVal High School, Monadnock Community Hospital, Peterborough Library, Yankee Publishing, Manhattan East, Millipore, Microspec, SoClean, Scott-Farrar, and Delay’s Harvester Market.
Participation is easy! Remove a “gift card” from one of the posters, purchase the gift specified on the card and then return the unwrapped gift with the gift card firmly attached to the original poster location by the deadline.
For those who prefer to make a financial contribution to Operation Santa, checks can be made payable to the “Peterborough Rotary Club – OPERATION SANTA” and mailed to the Peterborough Rotary Club, PO Box 354, Peterborough, NH 03458-0354 or through PayPal at
