Operation Others is an organization of Catholic high school students who want to make an impact on the Omaha area. As we head into the winter season with Christmas on its way, families are in need for a warm, plentiful meal, and Operation Others is here to help.
Roncalli Catholic’s National Honor Society participates in this program by organizing a canned food drive at Roncalli Catholic to assist in this initiative. Operation Others feeds just around 1,500 families each year during the Christmas season with their Delivery Day, in which they gather all donations from previous fundraisers, such as their Trick-Or-Treat for Cans event and the Turkey Drive, separate them into equal amounts for each family, and deliver them right to their doorstep. Roncalli Catholic’s National Honor Society is proud to be a part of this amazing organization.
As strong Catholics, it is our duty to help the materially poor, so this is just our front hold of His mission. Operation Others is not only a volunteering program but rather it is a way to spread God’s love out among those who are in need of His reassurance and gifts. Operation Others is very proud of the work they do, and hope to spark a light in others to help others within our selfless work.
