The Holiday Express mission is to deliver music, food, gifts, financial support and friendship to those with the greatest need for the gift of human kindness during the holiday season and throughout the year.Founded in 1993 by Tim McLoone, Holiday Express believes no one should be alone at the holidays. Their programs use the healing power of music and friendship to improve the quality of life for those often forgotten. This season, we will again be visiting 100 organizations in the metropolitan tri-state area, hosting special charitable events and bringing hope and joy to nearly 30,000 people. Of the charities Holiday Express serves, the majority are registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. For many of them, traditional sources of funding are not sufficient to provide their basic needs.
