Bringing joy to hundreds of children in need each year.

This holiday season will be tough for hundreds of families in our community. Family businesses were forced to close due to the struggles they endured trying to stay open through the pandemic. Some may have had work hours reduced forcing them to get a second job, and others may be unemployed.

With your help, the Potsdam Holiday Fund will be there for them, as it has been for families in need for over thirty years. Each year, hundreds of families have been able to give their children new gifts, along with warm winter boots and jackets, and enjoy a hearty holiday meal together, thanks to the Potsdam Holiday Fund.

Last year, the Potsdam Holiday Fund helped 387 children from 156 families that included 261 adults. In addition, 120 senior citizens in need received food through our program. Thus, a total of 768 individuals were helped by the Potsdam Holiday Fund last year.

We are excited that our program will be in-person again this year for Santa’s Workshop, which will distribute gifts and give vouchers for warm winter clothing to families who qualify for assistance. For the food portion of our program, we will give out vouchers that can be

redeemed by several local stores.

Won’t you join the many generous donors whose contributions make this program possible? We hope that you will choose to give to the Potsdam Holiday Fund this year so that we can continue to help our neighbors in need during the holiday season.
