Solid Ground Holiday Express


Solid Ground Holiday Express

Gift giving to our neighbors at Solid Ground at Christmas has been a significant ministry at Redeemer for a number of years! We are excited to share God’s love again this year in new ways!!!

Our Giving Tree for Solid Ground families is shifting to adjust to our current situation with a slightly different approach  for the health and safety of all families, volunteers and staff involved, while still capturing the joy of the Holiday Season!

Each Solid Ground family has received a Wish List to list up to three gifts they would like to receive, as well as one gift they would like to “give” for their parent(s). 

Solid Ground has begun the process of matching donors to a family (or families) to shop for and fulfill their Wish Lists. To help by purchasing gifts for families, please complete the Holiday Express Donor Form

Solid Ground is also collecting monetary donations to help fill the needs of families that we cannot match with a donor. To make a monetary donation, please visit the Donation Page of the Solid Ground website. 

December 11th: Donors are asked to finish their shopping and have their gifts wrapped and delivered to East Metro Place l(3521 Century Avenue North, White Bear Lake) by December 11th Please let Solid Ground know you are from Redeemer when you drop off gifts!

During the week of December 14th – 18th, Solid Ground is looking for volunteers help with distributing gifts to families at East Metro Place , as well as volunteer drivers to deliver gifts to scattered site families. Delivery times will be during regular office hours with each of our Programs having their own distribution day (scheduled TBD).

We realize that for some families it may be a struggle to complete and return their Wish Lists within the timeframes we ask. For those families, or families that we are unable to find donors for, Solid Ground will provide gifts for via Target and Amazon online registries and any monetary donations that are collected. Thank you!
