Operation Snowball is an alcohol and other drug use prevention program focusing on leadership development to empower youth to lead drug-free lives.

The name originates from the idea that "If I have a positive impact on you, you can have a positive impact on someone else and the effect snowballs." Out of this concept emerges "A Community of Caring" - the success of Operation Snowball. Click here to learn more about becoming a Snowball chapter or volunteering.

Did you know that more money is printed daily for the game Monopoly than by the U.S. treasury? If only some of that money could make a difference for Snowball and CGTI. But guess what? You can make that happen just by buying your games, toys, books, CDs and everyday items at iGive.com. At the Mall at www.iGive.com/os, you get a free membership (no costs or obligations) to shop at 600+ stores and without even knowing it, you'll be helping Snowball and CGTI at the same time. So, instead of printing money, just find a little here and there by doing a little shopping, and up to 26% of every purchase you make will be donated directly to Snowball and CGTI!
