The Harbaugh house, founded by Steve Harbaugh, is an organization that helps displaced families by giving them the tools and resources to get back on their feet. The Harbaugh House also raises toys every year for families who need a little extra help around the holiday season.

Our Story

The Harbaugh family is traditionally known as “The Griswolds of New Jersey” for their nationally famous Christmas Vacation themed display and toy drive held at their home in South Jersey.

2018

It all started with some lights. Steve Harbaugh wanted to make his house look like the Griswold house, but when people saw this and said how beautiful it was, he decided this wasn’t enough.

2019

The next year, he stepped it up with props, characters, and the authentic vehicles from the movie. This brought so many nightly visitors that Steve and his family thought it would be a good idea to start collecting toy donations in the famous RV to help families in need for Christmas. The first year they did this, they raised over 4,700 toys.

2020

In 2020, the Harbaughs had their most successful year yet, raising over 12,000 toys. The Harbaugh family got so many drive-by visitors that the roads were backed up for miles, causing quite a commotion with the town.

Last year was most notable after a local charity organizer, Noreen Owens, teamed up with Steve to provide toys to underprivileged families in Camden. In doing so, Steve learned that Nooreen and her 7 kids were displaced and living in a motel during the pandemic. Steve and his crew got together to give Ms. Owens and her family the greatest Christmas present they could receive: a home, stocked with food and furniture, and a level of safety that they need to get back on their feet. Ms. Owens and Steve will continue to work together to give back to less-fortunate families in and around Camden, New Jersey.

2021

Steve and his team are now building Harbaugh Village: a Christmas village that spans 40-acres of land. This will include a magical walkthrough of the Harbaugh House, along with many other fan favorites and attractions like Santa’s workshop, an ice skating rink, a Christmas train, and much more. The Harbaughs are racing against the clock to have all of this finished by Christmas 2021. This will be accompanied by Steve’s newly established organization: The Harbaugh House – which not only provides toys for families who need a little extra help around the holidays, but also works to provide shelter for displaced families in need. Noreen Owens, along with many others, will be a key player in this initiative.

Now, the Harbaughs want you to help them fill the HOUSE with toys for families this Christmas!
