Your Neighbors Are Hungry. Right Now.


Many families in the Archdale-Trinity area are living at or below poverty level. Over the last five years we have seen a disturbing trend. The meals that children get during the school day are often the only meals they will have. Most people don't realize the extent to which the economy has affected the lives of our local families. We not only see families doing without food, but also without many of the basic necessities that most of us take for granted.

Operation Christmas Star is a non-profit charity coordinated through Archdale Elementary School to provide meals for children and families who are in dire need of life's most basic requirements. Your contributions provide urgently needed provisions for those have no other relief available. School is challenging enough for any child. Imagine trying to concentrate on schoolwork or participate in activities when you're hungry and don't know where or when you'll find your next meal.

100% of donations and contributions go directly to those in need. Operation Christmas Star is a volunteer operated project and relies solely on your contribution of food, money, time and talent to help us reach out to those in need.

So far, Operation Christmas Star has donated over 22,000 pounds of non-perishable food items

100% of all donations go to benefit families of Archdale Elementary School and C.O.A.T. (Community Outreach of Archdale / Trinity) the local food pantry.
