Community Thread’s Holiday Hope connects people in need to those willing to provide support during the holidays. Low-income families, older adults, 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 older adults (age 55 and over) must live in the Stillwater Area School District. A form of identification for everyone being registered (including children) is required, along with a piece of mail within the last 60 days with home address. Applicants must apply in person at Community Thread.
