2022 Holiday Fest & Feast

The holiday celebration is back! Members who live in Minneapolis/St. Paul are welcome to come in December 13th and 14th (Tuesday and Wednesday) to collect gifts and enjoy the festivities!


What will members receive this year?

Hats, gloves, toys (courtesy of toys 4 tots) and a Target Gift Card are available as presents. For those getting their items mailed, we cannot guarantee that you will receive all of these items, and will opt to send smaller toys to those who have documentation of legal dependents in their file.

What if I live in Greater Minnesota?

Applications are available here: Click Here To Apply Our deadline to apply is NOVEMBER 11TH.

What if I become very ill and cannot come in?

Contact [email protected] and let us know. We will do our best to deliver or mail a gift to you but we cannot guarantee a delivery.

What are the activities that Aliveness will host throughout the week?

We will have a variety of holiday foods, decorations, and activities going. We will be showing movies, playing bingo, and are hoping to have some carolers come to visit!

I’d like to volunteer—is it too late to sign up?

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Ezra McNair, at [email protected] for more information.

I usually donate items. Is it too late to donate?

We’d love any donations! New hats, gloves, holiday stockings, new socks, holiday cookies, and gift cards ($10-20 Target or Cub Foods gift cards are most helpful for our members) are things we are always looking for during the holiday season! Make a monetary donation by clicking here.

Can I bake and donate cookies?

We are always happy to accept cookies! Please bring them to the Front Desk any time prior to our holiday party on December 13 – we have a freezer to keep them fresh. Please bag by the dozen or half dozen; labeling is helpful, but not required (vegan, gluten free, contains nuts, etc.). And psst, we’ll take cookies after that, too – our Meal Program can always serve them with lunch or to-go meals!
