Description
The Mile High United Way Children's Holiday Party is our largest community outreach event of the year. Last year we invited nearly 400 families to come and celebrate the holidays with cookie decorating, craft making, games, face painting and photos with Santa. Thanks to the generous donations of our community and corporate partners we are also able to provide a toy store where parents can "shop" for new gifts for their children. At the end of the day families left with great holiday memories, books for the children, coats for the family, and wrapped gifts to put under the tree. 

Bilingual Volunteers Needed for this opportunity! 

Interested in buying toys for the Children's Holiday Party, check out our Amazon Registry HERE.  

We hope you will join us at the 2019 Children's Holiday Party!

Hi, I’m unable to volunteer tomorrow along with my friend John Nouss since we are both sick from colds. Hopefully we can next year since I love this event. We are Santa’s Helpers, 10:45am shift.
