Operation Good Cheer at Oakland County International Airport Delivers Thousands of Presents to Children this Holiday Season

This weekend, Operation Good Cheer will take to the skies to deliver more than 20,000 Christmas gifts to over 7,000 children in foster care throughout Michigan. Donated gifts will arrive for sorting inside a Pentastar Aviation hangar at Oakland County International Airport (OCIA) on Friday, December 6. Volunteers will then load the gifts into more than 200 airplanes for delivery to 29 airports around the state on Saturday, December 7.

“Oakland County loves supporting Operation Good Cheer because it has such a positive impact on thousands of children in foster care throughout Michigan,” Oakland County Executive David Coulter said. “We’re grateful for the hundreds of volunteers who are making a difference in the lives of these children.”
