The “Holiday Gifts for Kids Program” is a special community event for United Way of Bemidji Area and the event planning committee. It is co-sponsored by RP Broadcasting stations, Paul Bunyan Communications, and caring community volunteers who help organize the event.
In 2022, 630 children, ages 0-17, experienced a joyful Christmas thanks to the generosity and kindness of others.
Parents or legal guardians are required to sign-up to participate in the Holiday Gifts for Kids program, and on the distribution day, they get the chance to "shop" for a gift for their child. In addition, each family will receive a board game.
