Jolly Holiday Lights is Make-A-Wish® Iowa’s largest fundraiser, granting approximately 80 wishes each year.

Volunteers are vital to our success. We rely on the dedication and passion of our volunteers to accomplish our mission of granting the wishes of children with critical illnesses. Be part of the magic of Jolly Holiday Lights, gather a team together and volunteer in the Wish Shop or help with set up and tear down. Want to practice your leadership skills?

Set-up or Tear-Down

Sign up as a volunteer team leader and bring your group to help unload displays, set-up Santa’s Wish Shop, string lights and check bulbs. When it’s all over, we’ll need volunteers to coil cords and pack up for another year.
