The Times

Dedicated volunteers spent a full day wrapping gifts to be distributed to community members who are in need during the holidays as part of Lenape Valley Foundation’s Holiday Assistance Program

Lenape Valley Foundation helped make the holidays brighter for those in need. Through its annual Holiday Assistance Program, LVF distributed gifts to more than 425 community members.

Individuals and companies were recruited to “adopt” individuals who were in need during the holiday season by purchasing gifts for them. Community members volunteered their time to wrap thousands of gifts in time for delivery before the holidays.

For 60 years, LVF has partnered with residents of Bucks County encountering mental health, substance use, intellectual or developmental challenges, providing services to assist them in the pursuit of their personal aspirations and an enhanced quality of life. LVF is a private, nonprofit provider of crisis, information and referral, treatment, case management, residential, consultation, and psycho-educational services.
