Holiday Assistance Program

Helping over 500 low-income community members celebrate the holiday season.

Please contact us no later than November 24  if you plan to donate to this program.

The holiday season is one that is supposed to be filled with joy and happiness, but that is not the case for many of our friends and neighbors in Bucks County. Lenape Valley Foundation (LVF) hopes to help make the holidays a little brighter for those in need through its Holiday Assistance Program, an annual effort organized by volunteers.
