Sponsor a Family in the Holiday Gift Program

Sponsors are matched with a family in need to purchase gift items for and are given a deadline of when gifts are needed to be returned to Neighbors so the families can pick them up. Sponsors are provided individualized “wish lists” from recipients to help with their shopping. Gift wrapping is optional.

We will begin accepting sponsor requests for the 2021 holiday season on October 1, 2021.

For questions about the Holiday Gift Program, please send us a note at holiday@neighborsmn.org or call us at 651-455-5000.

Happy Holidays!

Financial Donations

Money designated for the Holiday Gift Program will be used to purchase items for it. Donations may also be dedicated to support our intake staff that meet with each client family to help them with their wish list. Donate here.

Volunteer

A considerable number of volunteer hours are needed to support the Holiday Gift Program. Both onsite and off-site volunteer opportunities are available. If you can spare a few pre-holiday hours for a very rewarding program, please email us at: volunteer@neighborsmn.org.

Holiday Food Drives
