Holiday Hope Chests
It is that time of year once again when we roll out our Holiday Hope Chests Program. We are very excited for this season of giving and hope that you will partner with us. We have set our goal this year to receive 6,200 wrapped and filled shoeboxes. This simple, easy to complete project needs only a shoe box, your imagination and a generous spirit, to create priceless memories for underprivileged children this holiday season. This is a great project for businesses, large and small groups, clubs, classes, families and individuals.

In 2017 the Volunteer Center set a goal of 6,000 wrapped and filled shoeboxes. Over 29 nonprofit youth-serving organizations received boxes for their age groups to distribute and bring a little happiness to children here in the Lehigh Valley. Thank you to all of the shoebox donors, our sponsors & all of the volunteers that helped us reach our goal and bring such joy this past holiday season!
In an effort to help donors fill their shoe boxes we have collected and compiled a list of recommended items. Many of the items in each category are gender neutral. You can view the list by clicking here.
Donor Instructions can be found by clicking here.
Donors can drop off their wrapped (bottom & lid separately), filled (with items you purchased) Holiday Hope Chests at:
UGI Utilities, 2121 City Line Rd, Bethlehem 18017 (use Auditorium entrance on right, with the awning, as you face the building.)
Time/day options for drop off: Tuesday, Nov 27 through Friday, Nov 30, 12 noon - 6PM.
