Derby Operation Holiday 2018 had a very successful year, thanks in part to a grant from the Derby Community Foundation. One-hundred-ninety-three families, comprised of 700 individuals, were served in 2018. Donations of items such as toys, food and gift cards were supplemented with financial contributions, including the $2,500 grant from the Derby Community Foundation. Items purchased with grant funds included food items, stuffed animals, board games, and outdoor items (i.e. football, baseball bat, soccer ball, etc.), as well as Wal-Mart gift cards for 117 teenagers. The Derby Community Foundation is pleased to support Derby Operation Holiday, a community wide effort that each year brings joy to the lives of so many people in the Derby area.
