Please consider supporting the 2020 Operation Santa Claus program, facilitated by the Currituck County Department of Social Services. This annual program provides Christmas presents for local children, Currituck children in foster care, and food baskets for senior citizens.

* For families requesting assistance from the 2020 Operation Santa, the application period will be Oct. 12 – Nov. 6. Applications will be located in the vestibule of the Social Services entrance. Completed applications can be placed in the lock box at the front door. For more info, contact Social Services at 252-232-3083.
