Now Serving more communities!

This year marks the 50-year anniversary of our Holiday Hope program. Since 1970, we have offered hope to individuals and families throughout the Stillwater Area School District during the holiday season.

This year, our reach will go even further!

We are excited to announce that we are partnering with Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf to serve those who live in Woodbury, Oakdale and Landfall.

What is Holiday Hope?

Community Thread’s Holiday Hope program 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 400 local households benefit from the generosity of the community.

Double Your Impact

We’ve been through so much this year and couldn’t afford basic needs. Holiday Hope allowed our family to get necessities, such as socks, pajamas and food. Thank you!
