Operation Waverly

Operation Waverly
Component of White Christmas
Assisting Homeless Veterans

As a component of the White Christmas exhibition, we will be offering "Operation Waverly" to assist homeless veterans in our community.  We have teamed up with the DAV Auxiliary and the Oshkosh Public Library. "Operation Waverly," asks for donations to benefit veterans who visit the Day By Day Warming Shelter in Oshkosh. Click on "Wish List" for the needed items, and drop your donation item off at the Oshkosh Public Museum or the Oshkosh Public Library. Items will be distributed to the shelter weekly, as winter is just around the corner.  In addition, "Operation Waverly" programs related to our veterans will be offered.
