Yesterday I was invited to Emerald Coast Convention Center on Okaloosa Island for the kickoff to Operation Santa Boat.
Operation Santa Boat’s entire goal is to help deliver Christmas by boat to our neighbors to the East who have been severely impacted by Hurricane Michael.
The Emerald Coast CVB is banding together with the local maritime community to make this happen and will deliver them to families in Bay and Gulf Counties with the help of local charter captains.
If you would like to help, here’s how you can:
- 🎁 Purchase gifts and drop them off at one of the many Operation Santa Boat collection points located throughout Okaloosa County.
- 💻 Send gifts directly to the Emerald Coast Convention Center by purchasing them from their Amazon Wish List.
- 🙌 Donate your time by volunteering at an Operation Santa Boat collection point or at the Emerald Coast Convention Center.
Operation Santa Boat is happening now through Saturday, December 15.
We put together a little video from yesterday that features the CVB, Saltwater Restaurants & Five Star Properties!
