Help The Community Chest Provide Some Holiday Cheer to Those Less Fortunate This Season

Help The Community Chest Provide Some Holiday Cheer to Those Less Fortunate This Season

(Englewood, New Jersey; November 18, 2016) -- Provide some holiday cheer this season to less fortunate neighbors in the area. The Community Chest asks people to get into the spirit of the season and help our neighbors with a contribution to the annual Holiday Gift Card Program.

"The holiday season can be a very lonely, difficult time for people who do not have the resources to celebrate the season. While some neighbors are getting together with friends and families, others cannot afford to buy gifts for friends and family or entertain in their homes because they are not conducive to having company," said Dr. Shelly Wimpfheimer, Executive Director of The Community Chest.

Each year, The Community Chest carries out the motto, Neighbors Helping Neighbors, assisting local residents who are unable to celebrate the holiday season because of limited resources. The Community Chest selected these five nonprofit organizations providing services to individuals and families to receive $1,000 each to purchase gift cards to distribute to their most needy clients: Bergen Family Center, Women's Rights Information Center, Southeast Senior Center for Independent Living, The Center for Food Action and The Office of Concern. Families can receive up to $100, with smaller amounts awarded to individuals. Last year, 160 needy clients received gifts through this program.

Why should you give?

"The Community Chest reviewed and vetted all the nonprofit organizations selected to receive the gift card donations. The staff knows the circumstances of the individuals and families, who are experiencing difficulties this season. The public can make a difference and help them celebrate and enjoy this holiday season," said Wimpfheimer.

Contributions to the Holiday Gift Program may be done by mailing a check to The Community Chest, located at 122 South Van Brunt Street in Englewood, New Jersey 07631. Make an online donation at the nonprofit organization's website, www.thecommunitychestofenglewood.org, and click the Donate button.
