Lenape Valley Foundation seeks donors for Holiday Assistance Program

Individuals, groups and companies can “adopt” a family to offer some joy this holiday season

While holiday time is one that’s supposed to be filed with joy and happiness, that’s not the case for many in Bucks County. Lenape Valley Foundation hopes to help make the holidays a little brighter for those in need through its Holiday Assistance Program, an annual effort organized by volunteers.

Last year, the Holiday Assistance Program helped close to 500 people. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, LVF expects a greater need than ever before.

This year, LVF is seeking individuals, groups and companies to help those in need by “adopting” individuals and/or families to offer them some joy over the holidays. Once a company/individual agrees to “adopt,” a wish list will be provided. By purchasing gifts for these individuals, donors are doing a great service to others in the community. All those benefiting from this program are receiving services through Lenape Valley Foundation, which helps community members encountering mental health, substance use, intellectual or developmental challenges.

To reduce package handling during COVID-19, wrapped gifts are preferred. If you are unable to purchase gifts, monetary donations can be made at lenapevf.org/holidaydonation. To participate as a donor in the Holiday Assistance Program, call 267-893-5280 or email suzanne.rhodeside@lenapevf.org.
