Guide to Jingle Bells 2020

Jingle Bells 2020 took place on Saturday, December 12th 2020 starting at 5pm! The first show was held in December of 1949. It has run every year since then, including this "crazy" year.

The telethon will took place at Alexandria Area High School.
Chosen performers auditioned online and performed live at AAHS's Performing Arts Center (PAC).

While we plan to resume our regular food and toy basket deliveries in 2021, during this season of COVID-19, we sent out grocery gift cards following the Jingle Bells 2020 event. We did not distribute toys this year.

If donations exceed our cost of purchasing grocery help for families, that money will be dispersed to various area food shelves and put into a hardship fund. We also use funds to provide an annual scholarship for a graduating senior.

We will not be in need of volunteer help, as we do in normal years. There will be no physical food or toys to package, therefore we will not need those volunteers or drivers to deliver the baskets. (Thank you all so much for your help in the past and look forward to it in the coming years).

We will still have a live phone bank. Those volunteers will be answering phones during the live telethon. We encourage you to call in that night with your donation.
