Holiday Gift Bags

One of our favorite projects is the annual Holiday Gift Bags. Each Fall we collect donations from local businesses, volunteers and community members for the benefit of our guests. Guests receive winter clothing including hats, gloves, scarves, sweatshirts, socks, t-shirts, as well as toiletries, food items, other necessities and gift certificates from supermarkets. These gifts, combined with a sumptuous meal, help assure that our guests have a happy holiday.

If you would like to make a contribution or donate an item for the gift bag, please contact us or visit our donations page.
