Holiday Hands provides holiday gifts to thousands of Hunterdon County low to moderate income families, elderly residents, and individuals with special needs. To do this, we reach out to these individuals in our community and ask them what they most need and wish for. We then create shopping lists that are available through our website for local purchasing, or via wish lists on Amazon and Walmart for online shoppers. Generic and store-based gift cards are also accepted, with our more frequent requests coming from retailers such as Walmart, ShopRite, Kohl's, and VISA gift cards usable at any retailer. We also accept and encourage donations of new and unwrapped toys and household goods to add to our holiday store.
All purchased items are sent to our Volunteer Center which is transformed into a holiday store where clients can shop and select items for themselves and their family, allowing the dignity of choice!
Holiday Hands regularly serves 2,500+ neighbors in need, and we count on the support of donors and volunteers to meet our yearly goals.
