We are extremely thankful to all in our community who give to the programs at Saint Peter’s Haven throughout the year. Here is how you can help this holiday season:
Coats, Hats, Gloves
As we enter the colder season, we want to ensure that all members of our Food Pantry have warm coats for every member of their household. Both new and gently used coat donations are accepted. Distribution generally begins in late fall and lasts through the winter months. If your coat is in need of cleaning, you can visit one of our local partners, Deluxe Cleaners or Saveway Cleaners, who are kindly supporting us in getting coats to those in need. Simply let them know that you have a donation for Saint Peter's Haven, and they will clean your items at no charge and deliver them to us. We also accept winter accessories such as hats, gloves, and scarves.
Children's Holiday Gifts
Throughout the month of December, Saint Peter's Haven distributes holiday gifts to the children in our Pantry Program. Your donations greatly assist parents who cannot afford to purchase gifts for the holidays, as well as bring joy to all of the children who may not receive presents otherwise. Gifts valued between $15-$25 are greatly appreciated.
We hope to give our teenagers gifts they will truly enjoy by providing a small gift (hat, cosmetics, headphones, etc.) along with a gift card to a local retailer, where they can purchase something for themselves. Donations of $10 Gift Cards to any of the ollowing suggested retailers are greatly appreciated:
- Five Below
- Quick Chek
- Dunkin Donuts
Adopt one of our larger families and provide a gift for each family member. This is a great opportunity for a group that would like to work together to help a family struggling to make ends meet.
Giving financially allows us to continue ou programs and supportive services for those in need. This holiday season, you can double the impact of your gift to fight hunger and homelessness by donating to Partners for Health, which will match donations of $50 or more $1 to $1 - doubling your financial support. Kick off the season of giving by donating online this #GivingTuesday, and help us to reach our Year End Campaign goals.
Deadline for gifts and gift cards: Second Friday of December
