Project Legacy


Project Legacy’s goal is to involve the community and local businesses to provide families in need with a wide variety of necessities and gifts during the holidays. Donors may “adopt” an entire family or just 1 or 2 people.

It is Operation Wildcat’s mission to pool the resources in our community to help students and families in need.  Over the past years, OW has seen an increase in needs, and with limited resources, we have revised several of our programs to ensure our ability to assist as many as possible.  If a family received assistance from Legacy the prior year, they will be ineligible to receive assistance from Project Legacy the current year.  Family can still receive holiday gifts for their children from Gift Box.
