Children's Holiday Party

Friday, September 30th from 9:00am to Monday, December 12th, 2022 12:00pm

About

The Mile High United Way Children's Holiday Party is our largest community outreach event of the year. We are looking forward to serving 1,000 children this year.
Thanks to the generous donations of our community and corporate partners we are able to provide a toy store where parents can "shop" for new gifts for their children. Children will have the opportunity to meet Santa, craft and play holiday themed activities. At the end of the day families will leave with great holiday memories, treasured homemade keepsakes, and wrapped gifts. 

Bilingual Volunteers Needed for this opportunity! 

Interested in providing items for our families? Check out our Amazon Wishlist 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. Please contact volunteer@unitedwaydenver.org for questions about drives or to coordinate a drop off.

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

We hope you volunteer with us for the 2022 Children's Holiday Party!

For questions, please email volunteer@unitedwaydenver.org
