CREW Members! Three Ways to Give for 2020

October 26, 2020
Written by: CREW Leigh Valley
Hello CREW Members!

Every year we provide gifts to families through The Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley, Sixth Street Shelter and Turning Point.

Although things are a bit different this year with regard to getting together and providing gifts to the Three Amazing Nonprofits, we are still able to make a difference for many women and children throughout the Lehigh Valley.

Below you will find details on three ways to give for 2020. I would suggest that all donations be sent by December 11th.

Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley Holiday Hope Chests – shoe boxes collected in the Lehigh Valley by the Volunteer Center and distributed to 42 local nonprofit agencies. The need from the 42 agencies this year is 7800+ shoe boxes. There is a Donate Now button below or if you prefer to provide your filled shoe box you can visit the Volunteer Center for all the details.
All shoeboxes will need to be wrapped (lids and base wrapped individually)and delivered to a drop off point in Bethlehem.

Donate to the Holiday Hope Chests Program
Every $25 fills a shoebox for a deserving child in the Lehigh Valley. Click the HERE and select Holiday Hope Chests from the "Use this donation for" dropdown.

Sixth Street Shelter – they have requested we purchase items on their Amazon Wishlist that the families have put together. Amazon Wish List
