Please help Hope & The Holidays meet our goal of raising $3,300 during Give BIG Gallatin Valley right now through Friday, May 4th at 6pm.
Did you know that in 2017 we helped provided Christmas gifts to 1,613 kids in 595 families and gave out 338 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 $3,300 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, May 3rd starting at 6pm to Friday, May 4th at 6pm, your donation has opportunity to have an extra $20 or $750 added to it. The prizes are awarded for various different things like the donation made closest to sunrise, the 2018 donation made, and the small nonprofit with the most unique donors during the 24 hour period. To check out the whole list of prizes visit https://www.givebiggv.org/prizes.
And don’t forget, we are having a Christmas Party at Giggles: Toys & More in the Gallatin Valley Mall on Friday afternoon from 3-6pm. Start your weekend off right with some cookies and fun.

There are 3 ways to sign up for Christmas assistance. You can sign up here on Facebook; through our website; or call Santa’s Hotline 406-451-5312. The big thing to remember: SIGN UP ONLY ONE TIME!!! There are only 2 people returning emails and phone calls and there are hundreds of them. Once you have signed up one time you will get a call back but it may take some time. The only way you won’t get a call back is if I cannot understand you on the phone so remember to speak slowly and clearly leaving your name and phone number. You have 3 weeks to get signed up so there is no reason to panic. Toy pick up will be at Billion Nissan. Merry Christmas!
Toy sign ups start today, Friday November 24th, on Facebook though messenger and Santa’s Hotline will start to return phone calls on Monday, November 27th. Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
