How Does Give A Christmas Work
The Give A Christmas fund is administered by the Bucks County Opportunity Council with 10 percent of the proceeds shared with Keystone Opportunity Center. The two nonprofit agencies work on behalf of Give A Christmas to identify individuals and families needing financial assistance during the holidays.
The fund provides for a variety of assistance — from traditional help buying gifts and groceries to rental assistance, medical bills or utility needs. After the program satisfies eligible requests for assistance during the holidays, the remaining fund balance may be used by the agencies to provide similar types of assistance needed at other times of the year.
The Intelligencer’s Give A Christmas fund provides assistance to families in Central and Upper Bucks County as well as Eastern Montgomery County and the North Penn and Indian Valley communities.
