Winter Holidays Bring Community into the Heart of Eva’s Village
The holiday season reminds us that our community is truly part of our extended family. Volunteers of all stripes join Eva's family as they pitch in to make holidays bright and joyful for the hundreds of men, women, and mothers with children who find their way to Eva's Village - whether they are seeking a meal or a safe place to stay, in need of medical care or beginning their journey to recovery from addiction. Thank you for helping us create holiday magic for our guests and clients!

'Tis the Season to Share Holiday Joy!
The Spirit of Giving and Sharing Strengthens our Community
The Grinch, Elmo, Santa and his elves all showed up at Eva’s Community Kitchen on November 30 to serve up a generous helping of good cheer with Holiday Express! Founded by Tim McLoone, this extraordinary organization has been bringing holiday spirit to Eva’s – and many other nonprofits in the tri-state area – for more than two decades. Our clients enjoyed a delicious meal, live music and dancing, raffle prizes and gifts. 

Thank you to Wells Fargo Advisors, who sponsored the celebration, and to the wonderful volunteers of Holiday Express for a magical evening!
The spirit of generosity filled our annual Holiday Shoppe on Dec. 13, when clients in our residential programs were invited to select holiday presents for their children. Over the past few weeks, dozens of groups collected and donated thousands of brand-new toys, books and games. Corporate and church groups, families and scout troops volunteered to sort and arrange the gifts in colorful displays in our Community Kitchen. Additional volunteers, dressed up as Santa’s elves, helped clients find just the right present for their children, whether they were 7 months or 17 years old. Read more and view our photo gallery. Thank you to all who made the Holiday Shoppe a magical event!
Please help us fill Christmas Bags for guests and clients!
  • Donate warm winter accessories - unisex hat, glove & scarf sets, or fleece blankets, socks, and toiletries (no mouthwash, sanitizer or travel size items, please) to fill gift bags distributed to our Community Kitchen guests and all of Eva's residential clients on December 25. Visit our Holiday page for more information.
    Donation drop off deadline: Monday, Dec. 19.

    Don't have time to shop?

  • Donate gift cards - Use your credit card points to purchase gift cards. We will use them to fill Christmas Bags with items that our homeless neighbors most need to keep warm during this winter season.
  • Use AmazonSmile - Choose Eva's Village as your charity when you shop for holiday gifts. Amazon will automatically donate a percentage of your purchases to Eva's Village, at no cost to you. It's a simple way to do good during the holiday season!
