Community Thread’s Holiday Hope connects people in need to those willing to provide support during the holidays. Low-income families, seniors, and adults with disabilities are matched with sponsors who provide individually chosen gifts and a holiday meal. Every year, over 300 local households benefit from the generosity of the community.


Families with children ages 18 and under, adults with disabilities and seniors (age 55 and over) must live in the Stillwater Area School District. Applicants must apply in person at Community Thread.

Registration Process

Registration for Community Thread’s Holiday Hope program is held in person at our Stillwater location. 

Applicants must present a photo ID for each adult registering, a bill or paycheck stub with current address dated within the last 60 days, and an ID for each child age 18 and under (school ID, insurance card, or copy of birth certificate).
