10 Days of Donations

Winter is coming!

The days are growing shorter and snowflakes are falling, which means cold weather is here! You can help those in need stay warm this season by bringing winter survival items to the park. Donate new, unused cold weather items at the Front Gate before entry into the park to help those in need bear this polar coaster winter. Guests who donate will receive a voucher for a free S'mores Kit*. All collected items will be donated to PADS of Lake County to help end homelessness.

Acceptable items include:

  • Winter jackets / outerwear
  • Hat and gloves
  • Scarves
  • Backpacks / duffle bags
  • Sweatpants / sweatshirts
  • Laundry pods
  • Socks
  • Toiletries (Travel Size deodorant, lotion, etc.)
  • Hand and Feet Warmers
  • First aid kits
  • Food / Grocery gift cards ($5 per gift card) 

No weapons of any kind will be accepted. If brought, they will be confiscated and you will not be permitted to enter the park.

Collection will take place at the Front Gates from 1:30pm - 5:30pm on operational days starting November 23 through December 21.  One item is required per person. Please note that all donations should be made before entering the park prior to entering the security line. 

Collection will take place to the right of the main entrance before near Guest Services. 

After you make your donation, experience the dazzling lights and thrilling coasters of Holiday in the Park! This cold weather means it's the perfect time for a steaming cup of hot chocolate or a toasty S'more by the fire!

*One free S'mores kit will be given per group.
