The Holiday Project

The Holiday Project began through the work of graduates of the est training. The first Holiday Project visit occurred on Christmas Day, 1973 in San Francisco, California. Since its incorporation as a non-profit public benefit organization in 1980, more than 180,000 volunteers from every social, and economic background visited more than 1,500,000 people around the United States.

The real story of the Holiday Project lives in the lives of the experiences of each individual who participated. It lives in the face of an old man, beaming as a small child hugs him. It lives in the misty eyes of a woman recalling her youth. And it lives in the way the volunteers speak about their lives. “We gave gifts and sang, but the songs and gifts were just an excuse for us to be close” … “Now every year I visit with The Holiday Project. It makes my holidays how I always want them to be.”
