Now in its 3rd year, we invite the community to participate in the Holiday Express and share the magic of the holidays with the families we serve. Holiday donors have brought joy to hundreds of children and relief to many parents who might have otherwise struggled to afford gifts. We are excited to invite our donors back this year to share the holiday spirit through the Holiday Express!
How it Works
The Holiday Express gives families an opportunity to pick out the perfect gift for each other! Each family participating in Solid Ground programming will complete their Wish List of items. Families are then matched with community donors (like you!) who generously fulfill the Wish Lists and deliver the gifts to Solid Ground by December 9th for distribution.
How you can help
Purchase gifts for a family by using their personalized Wish List. Bring the gifts (wrapped or unwrapped) to Solid Ground by December 9th for distribution.
Individuals are needed to help organize gift drives at schools, neighborhoods, businesses, and faith communities. Contact Dylan at 651-846-9024 to learn more!
The week of December 12th—14th, volunteers and staff will help distribute the gifts from East Metro Place, as well as arrange for curbside pick-up and delivery to families in our scattered site programs. Times needed for volunteers are 4:00 to 6:30 pm.
If you are unable to shop for an entire family this holiday season, we welcome financial contributions, gift cards or purchases from our Amazon online registry. All financial contributions and items purchased for the Holiday Express will be used to fill the Wish Lists of families that were not matched with a donor.
If you would like to learn more about the Holiday Express program or how to contribute,
please contact Dylan at 651-846-9024 or [email protected].
Thank you for helping to make holiday wishes come true for the families we serve!
