During the school winter break our team implements our Winter Ordering Schedule, from December 1st - January 5th, where we momentarily pause ordering so that materials safely reach schools when they reopen.
If your materials are being sent to a custom address, we’ll place the order right away. 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 on the date you select to ensure that you and your students have the materials you need right when you return from break! Please keep in mind that materials can take two to three weeks to be delivered.
If your school has a longer holiday break, be sure to select an order date for when your school will be open to receive packages.
You can always check the status of your project materials by logging into your DonorsChoose account and going to your projects page.
If your school can’t receive packages during December, we’ll hold your order until early January so that packages don’t get sent to your closed school.
