Charity Success Story: Operation Smile & CNOY 2022

Operation Sharing’s dynamic duo – Shawn Shapton, Executive Director, and Scott McKaugue, Volunteer Event Director – knocked it out of the park hosting the Coldest Night of the Year 2022. Together, they not only planned an epic in-person CNOY walk, but recruit passionate teams, secure valuable corporate sponsorships, and mobilize an entire community around their cause.

In CNOY 2022, in a community of only 40,000 people, Operation Sharing raised $211,000!

“This is really going to change how we’re able to do business. Funds like this [will help] to enhance our programming, to add staff, to add proper software for intake for all of the programs… I was moved beyond belief to think of the support – not only financially, but the support of the community. “

Shawn Shapton, Executive Director of Operation Sharing

This amazing organization was active and engaged throughout the campaign. The team at Blue Sea Foundation stayed in close contact with Scott & his crew, sharing best practices, offering tools and resources, troubleshooting issues, and encouraging them every step of the way. We love working directly with Scott and admire his passion, drive, and dedication! It’s incredible to see just how much impact one volunteer can have on the entire Woodstock community.
