While the 2020 holiday season may look a little different without our annual Saturday with Santa in-person family outing, Rainbow Days’ Family Connection team was still able to serve local homeless families through tangible items and holiday joy.
This month, Rainbow Days delivered more than 1,100 Christmas stockings for homeless infants, children, teens and parents living in local shelters, transitional living sites and motels. Each stocking contained gifts, winter wear, toiletries and other essentials. Many generous volunteers helped us build stockings and wrap gifts before Rainbow Days’ staff delivered everything directly to our partnering shelter sites.
Saturday with Santa (2020 edition!) was made possible due to the support of countless individuals and groups. Rainbow Days would like to recognize the 2020 Saturday with Santa foundation and corporate sponsors: The Rees-Jones Foundation, The Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation, Varonis, Critical Start and First United Bank. Additionally, Rainbow Days is grateful for the countless individuals whose in-kind donations of toys and stockings as well as volunteer hours were critical to the success of this project!
