2020 Gingerbread House

Gingerbread Sign Up will begin virtually starting September 20, 2020. Additionally, there will be opportunities to complete sign up with other organizations you may already connect with regularly. Finally there will be a limit number of in person sign ups available in October and November. However families are encouraged to sign up utilizing virtual options or Gingerbread House Ambassadors as early as possible. We will not be able to accept additional referrals after November 15, 2020 to allow sponsors enough time to shop for items and coordinate distribution.

The current challenges with COVID19 have completely changed how we will need to facilitate the program this year. We will be moving toward options that limit physical contact in order to limit the spread of COVID19 as we collect and distribute holiday gifts. Although much has changed this year, our commitment to ensuring children and families create positive memories and joy during the holidays remains steadfast!

Each person signing up will need:

  • Identification
