Saturday with Santa: 2020 Edition!
Each year, Rainbow Days provides stockings filled with fun items and essential necessities as well as toys and gifts to homeless children and families in the Dallas area. This year, our goal is to provide these items to over 1,000 children, youth and parents! We need YOUR HELP to make the holidays bright for these special children and families.
The safety of the children and families we serve is always our top priority; therefore, we have decided to forgo our annual celebratory “Saturday with Santa” event. However, we want to make sure the children and families know we are thinking of and care about each of them during this difficult time. We need your help to let homeless families know, especially now, that we haven’t forgotten them this holiday season.
There are many ways to get involved and spread joy to children in need:
- Donations of toys and gifts, which can be purchased via the Saturday with Santa Amazon Wish List to be shipped directly to Rainbow Days’ offices, are needed no later than Monday, Nov. 30.
- Donations of stockings are needed no later than Friday, Dec. 4.
- Volunteers are needed to help transport stockings to the site where they will be organized and built, organize and build stockings, and transport stockings to the 20+ partnering shelters and transitional living sites.
PLEASE NOTE: All volunteers are required to complete our online Volunteer Application. If you have not yet completed an application, please fill it out here. The deadline for completing your Volunteer Application is Dec. 6. A background check is not required for these volunteer opportunities because we will not be interacting with the children directly.
