Ways to Help


Help us deliver human kindness at our charity programs. Come with us to visit the special people we see. Give hugs, smiles, dance, serve food, hand out gift bags or perform other fun activities like face painting or applying temporary tattoos – it is rewarding.

Help us put together the 15,000+ gift bags we give to those we visit during the Holiday Express season, October – December. It’s a lot of fun and you meet wonderful people!

Individual gift bags are an essential part of each program. In many instances, it may be the only gift they may receive during the holiday season.

We provide basic needs and items that are fun and useful. Blankets, personal care products, warm hats, gloves, scarves, socks, coats, coloring books, playing cards and stuffed animals.

Become a Giving Partner

Click here for the “wish list”

Through the generous support of donors who want to help, Holiday Express fills specific “wish list” needs of the various organizations we visit by matching individuals or companies with a desired “wish list” item. This match-up of donor and organization forges a warm and personal relationship – especially when the gift is presented in person - and develops a true partnership in caring.

Donate or Purchase Raffle Prizes

At the many places we visit we also give them a chance to win a raffle prize. Raffle tickets are given to the men, women and children in attendance and the names are picked at random.  There is wonderful excitement in the room as everyone waits to hear if their name has been called.  With all kinds of sales throughout the year, why not take advantage of the bargains & 'blue light specials' on several warm clothing items that have been requested.
