This holiday season we are excited to be working with Holiday Express, which is a volunteer, non-sectarian, non-profit organization that works year-round to deliver music, food, gifts, and human kindness to adults and children who are often forgotten, including the mentally and physically challenged, veterans, and children with serious illness, among others. In 2016 the organization will touch the lives of over 24,000 individuals. Holiday Express visits several organizations- the majority of which are 501(c)(3) organizations- to provide holiday celebrations that otherwise would not occur.
As part of the program, each individual receives a duffle bag packed with essential items- blanket, socks, hat, gloves and toiletries. W&G volunteers were able to go to the Holiday Express warehouse to help pack these bags to be distributed to those in need, as well as assist with other warehouse functions such as taking inventory, moving boxes, and loading/unloading trucks.
