Children's Holiday Party

Monday, October 19th to Saturday, December 12th, 2020

About

Mile High United Way's Children's Holiday Party is our largest community outreach event of the year. Last year, we invited nearly 400 families to celebrate the holidays with cookie decorating, craft making, games, face painting, and photos with Santa. While our event will be hosted differently this year, we still bring the spirit of the holidays to our community.  This year, to abide by social distancing and gathering requirements, we will host our holiday party outdoors as a drive through event.  Families will be able to drive through our winter wonderland to receive a box of holiday cheer including: 
  • $20 gift card per child
  • Wrapping Supplies​
  • Four new books​
  • Eight Candy canes​
  • Four small stocking stuffers/craft items ​
  • Four youth socks ​(variety of sizes)
  • Four waterproof gloves​ (variety of sizes)
  • Four toothbrushes, toothpastes, and floss
  • Family board game​
  • Gingerbread, cookie kit 

Register to be a virtual or in-person volunteer for Children's Holiday Party 2020. Please note that virtual projects are running from now until December 7th and are labeled as REMOTE.  

Bilingual Volunteers are needed for this opportunity especially during our in-person volunteer shifts!

Interested in providing items for our Holiday Boxes? Check out our Target Registry HERE. Please note if you plan to drop off supplies at our building, we are only accepting supplies Mondays and Fridays between 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Not able to volunteer or participate in the drive? Make a gift to help us purchase items for the Holiday Box Distribution to ensure that our families have everything they need this season. Give Now
