2018 Holiday Cheer Program

11/1/2018 9:00 am to 12/10/2018 4:30 pm

Many Berwyn families have difficulty making ends meet and providing gifts for their children is an expense that can't afford. Last year, through the community's generosity, we were able to assist 96 households - including 152 children ages 13 and younger - in celebrating the holiday season.

Do you have cheer you can share? Would your family like to help another family celebrate this holiday season? Berwyn Township is seeking organizations or individuals to sponsor, or "adopt" a family for the holidays. Families are referred to Berwyn Township through the school social workers. Interested sponsors will be matched with a family and given their contact information to better address the needs of the family. If you prefer, you can be a Secret Santa and provide for a family anonymously. Lastly, you may also choose to help by making a monetary donation to help defray the cost of the program.

If you would like more information about this program, or if you would like to sponsor a family, please contact the Berwyn Township office at 708-788-6600.
