Our partnership - The UnitingCare Christmas Appeal, Operation Santa, has been an exclusive gift giving campaign to Target, offering support to disadvantaged people of all ages for the past 20 years. The campaign is launched in Target and Target Country stores in early November each year and in 2011 we collected over 81,000 gifts and $149,590 worth of gift cards which were distributed to local communities.
