Registration forms are available for pickup and drop-off at several locations including Bi-CAP Head Start, Beltrami County Public Health Office, Rural Minnesota CEP, Northern Dental Access Center, Boys and Girls Club of the Bemidji Area and First National Bank of Bemidji. T

The registration form is online at www.unitedwaybemidji.org . Registration deadline is Dec. 2.

Monetary donations are the best way to support the program because it allows the committee to purchase toys at similar price values and it ensures there are enough toys for each age group of registered children. Monetary contributions can be made payable to Holiday Gifts for Kids and mailed to the United Way office at Box 27, Bemidji, MN  56619.
