The holiday season offers us a unique opportunity to make a positive impact in our communities and help those in need. It’s a time to shift our focus from our own desires to the needs of others. Whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, Diwali, or any other celebration, the act of giving is a universal language that knows no bounds. To embrace the spirit of giving during the holiday season, we have compiled a list of ways to give back to our local Montgomery County community.

Victim Services Center 

https://www.victimservicescenter.org/

As the year comes to an end and we begin to celebrate the holiday season we look back on the accomplishments of all the amazing survivors we supported through their healing journey and celebrate them.   Victimization is an issue impacting all communities across the United States and crime victims need access to resources and support.  Victim Services Center of Montgomery County, Inc. (VSC) provides these vital resources for 2,500 survivors and their families as they navigate their healing journey throughout Montgomery County, PA, each year.
We need your help to continue this meaningful work for years to come.  Please consider supporting our cause and helping survivors along their healing journey by donating, volunteering or sharing information about our work.  It is with the support of people like you that we are able to continue to support survivors!
VSC is a comprehensive crime victim’s agency whose mission is to provide advocacy and counseling for all who have been affected by sexual violence and other crimes against the person and to promote prevention and awareness in the community through education.

Hatfield Giving Tree Program

1950 School Road, Hatfield, PA

This annual program runs from November 8 through December 15, 2023. The Giving Tree will be in the lobby of the Hatfield Building, located at 1950 School Road. Gift tags on the tree are labeled with an age, gender, and gift request from a local child in need. People are encouraged to stop by during regular business hours to select a tag from the tree, and purchase the item(s) on the tag. They can then bring the new and unwrapped item(s) to the Township building before December 15, 2023.

Holiday Gift Care Program – Keystone Opportunity Center

As a community-based nonprofit serving Bucks and Montgomery counties, Keystone Opportunity Center helps community members in need by offering a comprehensive array of social services that educate, encourage and empower them to become self-sufficient. Donating $25 gift cards allows families to have a special holiday experience by shopping for gifts that truly fit their family’s needs. It allows the dignity of doing their own gift shopping. We ask that gift cards for the Holiday Sharing Program are Visa, MasterCard or Walmart, as these are most convenient for our families. These should be dropped off at the Center in Souderton on Mondays in November.

Between Friends Outreach – Random Acts of Christmas

Between Friends Outreach, Inc.(BFO) is a 100% volunteer, faith-based, non-profit 501(c)(3) agency working with homeless, low income & Veterans in our community. They work one-on-one with clients in Bucks and Montgomery County by providing resources to prevent homelessness and to assist clients transitioning out of homelessness. During the holidays, they also supply hundreds of local children with Christmas gifts. “Angel Tags” list a child and what they’d like for Christmas. Angel Trees are located at participating businesses throughout the area.
