25th Anniversary

For 25 years Holiday Outreach has provided children and families in need with support and we are proud of the work that we have done in our community. It would have been impossible to have provided the services we have without the help of our many volunteers and donors. We look forward to many more years of working with the community to make sure that children and families aren't forgotten at the holiday time and during difficult times throughout the year. We have provided more than 8,000 children with toys and gifts over the years and through our work with area food cupboards and soup kitchens, have provided more than 5,000 meals to families in need for Thanksgiving and the December holiday season.

We are looking forward to many more years of providing the kind of support that we have in our community.

Year in Review 2017

We want to thank all of you who have donated to and/or participated in our events this year. We have had quite a year. We supplied more than 600 children with gifts this holiday. We also provided meals/food supplies to area food cupboards and soup kitchens to feed several hundred families in need throughout the year. It never ceases to amaze me what a small group of dedicated volunteers can do to help families in need.

Special thanks this year go out to:

The Urlaub family and Rohrbach's for their 
continued generous support

U-Haul of Western NY for the vehicles we used to deliver toys

Van Bortel Ford for the vehicles we used to deliver toys

Rob Murphy and his family

Jim Murphy and his family

The Foster Family

The Fregeaus

The Brew Fest volunteers

Elizabeth Li and Mary Burr

Pancake Breakfast Volunteers

Chris and Ted Aroesty for the toys from their annual toy party

Monroe Educational Services for allowing us to store 
and wrap our toys at their facility

Andy Grantham � our webmaster

The Black Friday (Thanksgiving) toy buying crew

The group of social workers and school counselors who worked so hard to get us the family requests for toys/gifts

All of the wrappers (89 of you) that came out to help 
us wrap nearly 1,500 toys

The December 23rd and 24th delivery crews
There is no way for us to do what we do without the help of all of those that volunteer at all of our events. We look forward to next year and hope that we can provide even more support than we did this year. 
We will need your help to do that. Happy New Year! Chris, Mark, Kim & Tom



2018 Fund Raising Campaign


Holiday Outreach is a not-for-profit organization that was formed fifteen years ago to assist less fortunate families during the holiday season and throughout the year. Over the years, our organization has raised nearly $200,000. Our fund raising efforts have enabled us to supply many families in need from the city of Rochester as well as other parts of Western New York.

We have a number of fund-raising events and activities throughout the year so please check in on them to join us (all of our events and activities are listed on our website).

Over the years we have been able to help people in a number of different ways. We have supplied blankets to the homeless; provided food and supplies to food cupboards/soup kitchens; supplied food and gifts for children of families in need; and provided assistance during emergency situations.

Our goal this year is to be able to provide more children with toys and gifts and to give greater assistance to those food cupboard/soup kitchens than we have been able to in the past. In order to do this we will need to surpass last year�s campaign total. We ask for your assistance in this tremendous challenge.


We can�t do it without you!
