Holiday Express Giving Partner Program Your Gift in Action:
One of the hallmarks of Holiday Express is its ever-expanding Giving Partner Program. Through the generous support of the donors who participate in the Giving Partner Program, Holiday Express fills specific needs of the various organizations we visit.
Each organization provides Holiday Express with a "wish list," and Holiday Express seeks companies or individuals interested in purchasing desired items on the list, such as WII game systems, therapy equipment, iPads & iPods, kitchen equipment, blankets, coats, gift cards, event tickets and many other needs for the facility. The program is in addition to the gift bags each individual receives at the event.
This match-up of donors with charities forges a warm and personal relationship that transforms the donors and charities into true partners in caring. Most of the donations made through the Giving Partner Program come from individuals, families and neighborhood groups, though corporations also play a significant role in the program's success.
Holiday Express cordially invites businesses, individuals, families and groups to join in the Giving Partner Program and help fulfill the needs of the many worthy organizations that serve those in need within our communities.
