Each year as we prepare for the holiday season, the Volunteer Center staff, board and volunteers work around the clock like elves to bring "Happiness in a Shoe Box" to thousands of youth in the Lehigh Valley.
In 2019 and 2020 over 40 local nonprofit organizations who work with underserved communities with youth programming were the recipient of shoeboxes for the youth they support.
Each donation of $25.00 on GivingTuesday was used to sponsor a shoebox. The Volunteer Center volunteers used the donation to fill shoeboxes with gifts, toiletries, games and other items to make a difference for children during the holidays. This shoebox is often the only gift that some children will get over the holiday season.
YOU CAN STILL HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR HOLIDAY HOPE CHESTS 2021!
Thank you for helping us make a difference here in the Lehigh Valley on Giving Tuesday 2020!
Your donations helped us to meet our goal of 8,040 shoe boxes
to give local children Holiday Hope Chests.
