Join Our Holiday Extravaganza

For most of us, the holiday season is a time of joy, but for our neighbors struggling to make ends meet, the holidays can be a real source of stress and sadness. Everyone deserves to enjoy this magical time, so we're hosting a Holiday Extravaganza complete with gifts, holiday meal kits, family-friendly activities and lots of holiday cheer!

Make a Donation

Become a Sponsor or Partner

It takes a lot of supplies and logistics to make this holiday magic happen. Sponsorships and in kind partners offset the cost of putting on programs like this and allow us to add extra special touches!

Host or Participate in a Drive

We'll provide the boxes and lists of suggested items, and even pickup when your drive is complete. You can collect nonperishable food items for our holiday meal kits or essentials like hats, gloves, t-shirts and coats to supplement each family's gift box. Items are due by November 29.

Host or Attend a Wrap Party

THIS OPPORTUNITY IS FULL. We'll provide the gifts, supplies, hot drinks and holiday music. You provide the hardworking elves! Watch parties will take place the week of December 6.

Volunteer at a Pickup Event

We need friendly elves on the family pickup days, December 14 (Suffolk) and 16 (Virginia Beach), to help with setup, welcome and check-in, holiday activity stations, and carrying items to sleighs.
