Thank you for bringing joy to families in need

During the holiday season, we appreciate family and friends, share gifts and give thanks. For many families in our community, the holiday gifts most needed are the basics—money for rent, warm winter clothes or a hot meal.

For 18 years, Holiday Wishes, a partnership between Greater Twin Cities United Way and the Pioneer Press, has helped families have a brighter holiday. Read more about the program. This year, you helped us raise $54,000 to help fulfill these Holiday Wishes. 

We're no longer accepting Holiday Wishes donations, but you can help families in need all year-round with a gift to United Way's General Fund.

  • Thank You For Your Kindness!

    Pioneer Press readers donated $54,500 to Holiday Wishes, in addition to a $25,000 donation to the Holiday Wishes car program from the anonymous family, as well as a $10,000 Target match. Thank you for your support!
