The Holiday Project
Visiting People All Year Long
The Holiday Project organizes visits to people in nursing homes, hospitals and other residential institutions. We give our volunteers an opportunity to contribute to others and we create an opportunity for those we serve to contribute to us. See a few of our Visit Moments.
CBS National News aired this story in over 50 cities on Christmas Day, 2013.
"Thank you so much for organizing this. Today had a profound effect on my family. My eleven year old son asked if we could do it again next year. He handled himself with such grace and kindness. It was wonderful for us to see. My husband, who is a bronze star and combat wounded veteran, got to speak to some WWII vets and that was extremely touching for him. This was the best way that I have spent a Christmas morning in a very long time. Count us in for next year."

Bringing the Spirit of a Holiday
to those who otherwise
might not have
Our goal is to make visits to people in institutions an integral part of America’s Holiday Experience.
