Santa’s Workshop 2019

December 11-14, 2019

at Mutual Ground


Mutual Ground’s Santa’s Workshop is a family friendly opportunity to help those who need it most. 

Each year, we turn part of our agency into a virtual store for our clients and their families, who can shop at no charge for their loved ones.

Last year, we served a record number of 90 Mutual Ground client families. For one of these families, it was the first time in three years they were able to have holiday gifts. 

We also donated almost $2,000 in gift cards to our high-need families, received gift donations from more than 25 community groups and organizations, sorted and stocked thousands of donated items, provided hot cocoa, crafts and Santa visits, wrapped countless gifts, and were helped by more than 150 volunteers! Fourteen families each received a brand, new bicycle too.  

How can you and your organization help us make this year even more successful?

  • Hold a holiday gift card or item drive for Mutual Ground to be delivered by Friday, December 8.
  • Choose a category and donate needed items from our Santa’s Workshop 2019 Wish List
  • Volunteer yourself or with a group during early December to help us organize and accept donations on-site
  • Volunteer yourself or with a group during the event held December 11-14.

This really is a wonderful way to celebrate all we have and help those who need it most.
