Donors needed to help spread holiday cheer

Lenape Valley Foundation is hosting its annual Holiday Assistance Program

While holiday time is one that is supposed to be filled with joy and happiness, that is not the case for many of our friends and neighbors in Bucks County. Lenape Valley Foundation hopes to help make the holidays a little brighter for those in need. The Holiday Assistance Program, an annual effort organized by volunteers, was developed for just that purpose.

For the past 60 years, the compassionate and caring staff of Lenape Valley Foundation has been there to provide treatment, crisis services, case management and community support for children and adults in need. More than 12,000 residents in the community have utilized one or more of LVF’s critical services this past year. The doors of Lenape Valley Foundation’s programs are always open to those who have the greatest needs.

Again this year, LVF is helping community members who are in need during the holiday season. Companies and individuals are solicited to help by “adopting” families and/or individuals in order to offer them some joy over the holidays. Once a company/individual agrees to “adopt,” a wish list will be provided. By shopping for and purchasing gifts for these individuals, donors will be doing a great service to others in the community.

Donors may elect to wrap the gifts or provide them unwrapped. WIth the help of volunteers, all unwrapped gifts will be wrapped. If you are unable to purchase gifts, but would like to make a monetary donation to be used for gift purchases, that would also be appreciated.

Lenape Valley Foundation’s mission is to partner with members of the community encountering mental health, substance use, intellectual or developmental challenges as they pursue 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.
