St. Nick Delivers! provides a year-round online platform for connecting donors with local non-profit organizations fighting poverty and homelessness in Frederick County, Maryland.
WHO WE ARE
St. Nick Delivers! may be our new name, but the heart of our Giving Project began more than 35 years ago as a way for the members of Holy Family Catholic Community Church in Middletown, MD to sponsor families in need at Christmastime. Originally named Helping Hands, our Giving Project has grown from exclusively sponsoring those in need through the Seton Outreach Center’s Christmas program to now sponsoring individuals and families through multiple local charitable organizations across Frederick County, Maryland with our list of partners growing every day.
Facing the challenges of in-person Giving Tree ornament selections during the COVID-19 pandemic, our volunteer team made the important decision to grow once more into an online platform. With this growth, our doors can now open to all donors seeking ways to support local charitable organizations serving Frederick County, Maryland communities. This online platform will allow us to readily update and promote our charitable partner’s greatest needs not just at Christmastime but throughout the year!
WHAT WE DO
WE DELIVER HOPE.
For each season of the year St. Nick Delivers! hosts an online donation drive. The list of organizations and how we support them may change based on their seasonal needs, such as a back to school supply focus in the Fall and welcome home kit supplies in the Spring.
Our website offers several ways beyond monetary giving for anyone to donate. Including but not limited to: sign up links to fulfill need requests, wish lists such as Amazon for direct shipment, and mailed or in-person collections. Donation wish lists include a range of recipient ages (infants to seniors) as well as a multitude of items from clothing and toys to monetary and gift card donations; food and paper products to personal hygiene items and cleaning supplies. We work in conjunction with our charitable partners to develop and ensure the age ranges and items being requested on our sign up links and site specific wish lists are of the highest need. To view our current seasonal giving project click HERE.
If we receive a request from a charitable partner or other local non profit organization to assist in fulfilling an immediate need, those requests are posted separately under 'Donate Today'. To view our current immediate need support requests click HERE.
Not only do we include direct delivery options, St. Nick Delivers! also offers a 1-day outdoor drive up collection event for accepting community-wide donations for our charitable partners during each of our giving seasons. This is a fantastic option for those who wish to donate to multiple organizations at once.
Our St. Nick Delivers! Guarantee: We are completely volunteer run and no one associated with our project is paid for their assistance. All items listed via our donation request links are the requests of our partnering organizations and 100% of all donations received through a St. Nick Delivers’ collection day are distributed directly to the donation’s intended charitable organization on their respective designated receiving date.
