WE ARE NOW ACCEPTING DONATIONS FOR THE BERWYN HOLIDAY FUND
The Berwyn Holiday Fund sponsors a community Thanksgiving dinner, on Thanksgiving Day, for those who lack funds to provide such a meal, or have nobody to celebrate with. Last year, we served 285 Berwyn residents a traditional turkey dinner with all the trimmings, at a wonderful family-style gathering. This effort is in its ninth year. Through the generosity of donors like you, we have served 2,432 dinners over the previous eight years -- an average of 304 meals each year.
We also sponsor a Holiday Food Basket program, now in its ninth year. Last year, we assembled and delivered more than 450 food packages to those in need. Over the life of this effort, we have delivered 3,397 baskets to disadvantaged families, averaging 424 per year. The volunteers who gathered to help with this act of charity felt humbled by the experience--and grateful for the chance to help the less fortunate.
The Berwyn Holiday Fund also hosts the “Sailors for Christmas” celebration each Christmas Day. It’s a beloved Berwyn tradition, now in its 12th year. It’s Christmas away from home for around 100 young sailors whose service obliges them to be away from home for the holiday. We entertain on average, 97 sailors-- and 52 area veterans – every Christmas.
Like nearly all good things in life, these programs require funding to continue their successful course – and any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.
