We would like to thank everyone who donated their time, talents and treasures to Christmas of HOPE this year. Our many wonderful sponsors and volunteers were very busy elves and we would have been lost without them. We would also like to recognize and thank The Old Gregg School Community Center for kindly donating space for us to work in this year and Thrivent for their grant of $250 toward our Toiletry Project.
Thanks to the generosity of all of you, we were able to provide gifts for 86 Penns Valley children.
The HOPE Fund of Penns Valley would like to thank all of you who organized, participated, and/or donated to the “Hoops for HOPE” Charity event in January at the PV vs. Bald Eagle Lady Rams Basketball game. This will become an annual event. There were a lot of baskets, baked goods and a 50/50 that raised $1,680. These proceeds will help a neighbor in need that lives in the Penns Valley community that have been faced with a medical emergency or personal disaster.
CHRISTMAS BLESSINGS IN A BOX will be provided again this year by the YMCA for families that are in need.
As Christmas approaches, we realize that many local families might not have the opportunity to enjoy a big meal to celebrate, so the YMCA will be offering a Christmas meal in a box to families that qualify.
Items in each Box: Turkey or Ham and many surprise side dishes to complete your meal
The YMCA is offering their Thanksgiving Blessings in a Box again this year to families in need. See their posting below and contact them as soon as possible if you are interested in requesting a box of food.
