Please help Hope & The Holidays meet our goal of raising $3,800 during Give BIG Gallatin Valley April 30 through May 1st.
Did you know that in 2019 we helped provided Christmas gifts to 1,379 kids in 529 families and gave out 322 food baskets. Even though we get toys, books and games donated to us at Christmas time, we purchase a lot of toys with money we raise throughout the year. Our goal of $3,800 is about 10% of what we spent on toys last year.
If you’re able, we would greatly appreciate a donation. Just $5 gets a book into the hands of a kid at Christmas. $150 provides a family with two kids a complete Christmas package from us including the food basket. Visit https://www.givebiggv.org/organizations/hope-the-holidays to donate to a child’s Christmas experience.
Throughout the 24 hour period of Give BIG, Thursday, April 30th starting at 6pm to Friday, May 1th at 6pm, your donation has opportunity to have an extra $50 to $1,000 added to it. The prizes are awarded for various different things like the first 10 donations made after 7:00am on May 1st, 1 randomly selected donor who gives between 7-9 pm on April 30th., and the small nonprofit with the most unique donors . To check out the whole list of prizes visit https://www.givebiggv.org/prizes.
We want to make helping Hope & The Holidays as easy as possible for you, so this year we’ve added an Amazon Wish List of things we think might be good gifts. This is just a few ideas, we don’t have specific items we need. Purchase on Amazon and it ships directly to us!
This next weekend kicks off the beginning of the holiday season for Hope & the Holidays as toy boxes go out to various locations throughout the valley.

Hope & the Holidays is partnering with this wonderful performance and we wish you the merriest of holidays and encourage you to place new unwrapped toys in our bins throughout the valley so that all children can have a joyful Christmst!

In order to better serve our families, Hope & the Holidays and The Salvation Army Bozeman have teamed up starting this year.
At the time of toy pick up, we will be requiring a form of identification for parents (driver’s license or birth certificate) as well as identification for the child(ren) (a social security card or birth certificate or insurance card) being served. If the child(ren) live in two homes, the primary custodian will be the one who can receive gifts for the child(ren). This will enable more families to be served.
We will start signups on Facebook, our website, and Santa’s hot-line on Monday, November 26th. Please apply only one time.
Thank you and Happy Holidays.
