Gift Bag Items Needed

Individual gift bags are an essential part of each Holiday Express visit. In many, if not most instances, the gift bag they are given may be the only gift they will receive during the holiday season. Hundreds of volunteer warehouse “elves” work extremely hard to make sure all 27,000+  bags get packed not only with loving care, but with a substantial amount of practical necessities and items that are fun and/or useful. Each gift bag contains personal care items, warm clothing, blankets and other goodies — customized to the needs of the particular party guest. All items must be new and are needed in our warehouse inventory by October/November.
