100% of the proceeds from Operation Halloween go to benefit the many participating charities. The primary beneficiaries are the hosts of the event: The Southern Ocean Rotary Club and The Jersey Shore Council Boy Scouts of America.
With over 1.2 million members worldwide, Rotary is made up of three parts: at the heart of Rotary are local clubs that are supported by Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation. Proceeds from Operation Halloween in the past have gone to support scholarships for local students and local habitat for humanity construction projects as well as donations to Polio Plus and Shelter Box to support humanitarian relief efforts overseas.
Boy Scouts of America – Jersey Shore Council, headquartered in Toms River, serves more than 6,000 young people in Ocean, Burlington, Atlantic, and Cape May counties.
