Help spread the holiday cheer through Operation HoHoHo...

Operation Ho Ho Ho uses a simple philosophy to spread the smiles to the children and families of the Ronald McDonald House on Christmas by collecting unwrapped gifts at various events during the holidays. We work with a handful of organizations that set up drop off centers and we have found that our best method is to work with the hosts of holiday parties and have them include a note to bring a gift instead of a present for the host. It's a win / win for everyone then!!

How to participate?

We work with both organizations and individuals to collect unwrapped gifts. We can arrange drop off locations and present pick ups along with providing you with flyers and media for Operation Ho Ho Ho…

What types of presents?

We are looking for all types of gifts. We look for unwrapped gifts for children between the ages of 2 to 16 and through the years have received every thing from board games to bicycles…

Video and Photos

Please enjoy some of the videos and photos from previous years along with this years movie trailers! It’s amazing to think how many smiles our trailer load of gifts will bring!!

Ronald McDonald House

Who the Ronald McDonald House is.

We know that families are stronger when they are together, and their presence helps a sick child heal faster and cope better. While Ronald McDonald House Charities cannot make medicine taste better or take away painful treatments, we can help lessen the burden and ensure more than 4 million families a year have the stability and resources they need to keep their child healthy and happy.

History of Operation HoHoHo

What is this Toy Drive all about? Operation Ho, Ho, Ho is a toy drive that we hold every December to help bring smiles to the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Long Branch during the holiday season as a member of their family fights to see their
 next Christmas.

Hosting a Holiday Party?

A simply way to get involved! When you send out your invitations for your holiday parties, why not include a little note that you’re participating in Operation HoHoHo and instead of bringing a bottle of wine or trinket, why not bring a present that will help make the day of a toddler
