On December 19, 2009, the Rock - away Jetty carried out their first “Operation Santa” at the Knights of Columbus. The event was a great success, and was enjoyed by over 60 children and their families. The goal of “Operation Santa” was to provide chil d ren who otherwise would not have had much of a Christmas, with a few gifts and a memory to last a lifetime. This event was another opportunity for the Jetty to fulfill its goal of helping needy kids in the Rockaways. The members of the Rockaway Jetty would like to extend a special thanks to Jeremy McMilleon and Russo’s on The Bay, Nick the Balloon-A-Tic, and Andy McCracken and the Knights of Columbus.
If anyone is interested in contributing to the Jetty’s cause, donations may be sent to The Rock away Jetty, P.O. Box 940042, Rock away Park, NY 11694.
