For all projects that ship to a school address, we order materials on a Winter Ordering Schedule from December 1st - January 5th.
If your materials are being sent to a custom address, we’ll still send them to you ASAP. If your project is eligible for flexible shipping, you’ll be able to give us your custom address when confirming funding for your project.
If your school can receive packages during December, you can tell us your school’s availability during winter break when you confirm funding for your project. We’ll place your order based on the date you select to ensure that you and your students have the materials you need right when you return from break! Keep in mind, materials can take up to two or three weeks to be delivered.
If your school can’t receive packages during December, we’ll hold your order until January so packages don’t get sent to your closed school.
If your school has a longer holiday break, be sure to select an order date when your school is open and can receive packages.
You can always check the status of your project materials by logging in to your DonorsChoose account and going to your projects page.
