If all you had for Christmas was fear and hunger, you would understand Operation Holiday®

“I wanted to die, now I have hope” said Holly McFee, after receiving assistance from POWER CHANGES LIVES Operation Holiday®. Holly was one of the hundreds of families who are benefiting from generous donors this Holiday season. Having to flee New Jersey to Ohio because of the sexual assault of her 9-year-old daughter Jacee at the hands of her ex-husband, Holly has found the help and support she desperately needed from Operation Holiday® and their network of donors. The truth is …. there are many “Hollies’” who need your help.

Your support can help others like Holly, senior citizens and the homeless through direct donations that are 100% tax-deductible. POWER is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization recognized by the IRS under tax identification number: 83-1855848.

“We have reached $5,000 of our $75,000 goal in our efforts to feed, clothe and assist over one-thousand individuals in need. Donors have also generously provided 53 Kindle Fire tablets to be distributed to Seniors, and $50 gift cards that will be placed directly in the hands of the homeless. COVID-19 has struck hard, regardless of socio-economic class, where people who have never asked nor needed assistance are seeking us out for help. Our team works with everyone who contacts us with the goal that no one leaves unserved. Our goal is to CHANGE LIVES . . . but we need help”, said Penelope Lopez the Chairman and CEO.

After being diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer, 20 rounds of chemotherapy and a bilateral mastectomy in 2016, now in remission, Chairman Lopez dedicated her young life to helping those in need because "life happens". Now, from her home office located in New Jersey, a team of like-minded volunteers across the United States has joined her to step up to the challenge to help families in need for Christmas with Operation Holiday, support Senior citizens with life-saving pre-programmed Kindle Fire tablets providing them with one-touch virtual access to their doctors, pharmacies, and loved-ones; and the distribution of Walmart gift cards to the homeless to purchase coats, clothing, food, and toiletries.
