Holiday Hands Program Brings Cheer to Neighbors in Need
“Thank you for making my family’s Christmas brighter and warmer. This year has been rough for our family.”
The generous support of our community ensures that United Way of Hunterdon County is able to give this family, and more than 2,700 of our neighbors, a brighter holiday season. Did you know it costs about $81,000 for a family of four to barely get by in Hunterdon County? And that figure doesn’t include extras like a night at the movies, or holiday gifts. Hunterdon County’s high cost of living coupled with a sluggish economy make it increasingly difficult for low-to-moderate income families, elderly residents and others with special needs to make ends meet, which is especially poignant during the holiday season.
Getting involved in Holiday Hands is easy. United Way will match individuals or organizations with a family and/or individual and provide their wish list. Unwrapped gifts and/or gift cards are brought to the United Way of Hunterdon County’s office by December 6, 2017. Gift cards are always needed, especially for individuals and family that are not “adopted”.
If you, your company or your organization are interested in learning more about adopting a family or volunteering this holiday season, please contact Amy at (908) 237-1689; email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your participation in Holiday Hands makes a significant impact to ensure that local families will experience the wonder of the holidays, and it is a remarkable way for your family, your office, your organization or your friends and you to make great things happen when we LIVE UNITED.
