Help Bucks County Kids on #GivingTuesday

November 26th, 2018

This #GivingTuesday, your gift to a local kid means everything.
We have almost 500 older kids and teens on our Holiday Gift Card wait list – a number we expect to double
by the end of the month.
Right now, we can serve 154 of them. That’s at least 356 kids left waiting – more as the list continues
to grow.
Every year, hundreds of older kids and teens in Bucks County are completely forgotten during the holidays.
Toy drives provide the right gifts for kids under 12, but not much for older siblings.
You can help make the holidays a little brighter by supporting our Holiday Gift Card Drive.
Check out this video to see why the Holiday Gift Card Drive is so important to kids right here in
Bucks County.

UW Bucks Holiday Gift Card Drive 2018
Please go to www.uwbucks.org/giftcarddrive and give a gift that matters.
Gifts of any amount will help and are deeply appreciated, but we do our best to make sure the average gift is $30 per child. That provides a $25 gift card (e.g. Target, Walmart, clothing store, book store, movies) and an extra $5 gift card for food (Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, Burger King, etc.)
All donations go to local kids who are experiencing a true need this holiday season. These kids are going through some tough times, so please give generously.
P.S. Gifts of all sizes make a difference, but if you can’t give this year, please help by forwarding this email or sharing information about the Holiday Gift Card Drive on your social media page.
