About the campaign
SLBA member and Past President, Jan Mayhew, organized Operation Santa in 1994 as a holiday project to help needy children. Since then, the program has grown exponentially. For many years now, SLBA has participated by supporting students from Forest View Elementary in south Lansing. The school identifies students who are most in need of some Santa magic and each student lists a few items they would like to receive. Many times, students wish for warm clothes or new bedding. Wish cards are available, or you may make a donation for the Elves to use as needed.
