ABOUT HOLIDAY EXPRESS
On Thanksgiving Eve, 1993, as restaurateur and musician Tim McLoone prepared for yet another holiday surrounded by loving family and friends, he felt a strong sense of gratitude... but also a nagging sense that he should do something to bring this warmth to others less fortunate.
He turned to his network of musician friends with the idea of bringing the healing power of music to people whose lives needed an injection of happiness. By that December, his small band of troubadours and other volunteers put on parties for AIDS patients, the developmentally disabled, the isolated elderly and disadvantaged children. At the end of the first season, Tim's makeshift group of merry-makers performed for more than 6,000 people in 10 different venues.
After the tinsel and jingle bells were put into storage, Tim and his friends could not easily put aside the emotions brought on by seeing so many people in such difficult circumstances. The group knew that they had to keep the momentum going. They dubbed themselves Holiday Express, and, in 1994, received approval to operate as a non-profit, non-sectarian organization.
Every year, Holiday Express has grown in reputation, in volunteer members and in reach. The band currently boasts more than 70 singers and musicians from noted bands and the Broadway stage. Our general volunteers offer countless ideas, skills and talents.
The group visits more than 50 institutions every year between November and the end of December, bringing its unique brand of music, food, presents and pure joy to people who need the gift of human kindness. The handful of volunteers who helped host the first parties in 1993 has since mushroomed to more than 90 dedicated musicians and 1200 general volunteers who help keep the organization running like a well-oiled wheel, with just four steadfast employees who handle day-to-day operations.
Indeed, Holiday Express has an indefinable something that makes a meaningful difference in the lives of thousands of area residents. This magical aura is reflected in the hugs and smiles of our many clients. No holiday glitter shines brighter!
