About The Holiday Fund

The Potsdam Holiday Fund, Inc. is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization of volunteers, providing new toys, clothing, boots and food to families and senior citizens in need in Potsdam, Madrid, Hopkinton, Nicholville, Brasher Falls, Chase Mills, Fort Jackson, West Stockholm and Winthrop, New York.

For the past 30 years, we have distributed over 2,500 gifts and new winter garments each year to more than 500 needy children from Potsdam and the surrounding communities. In addition, our volunteers have delivered over five tons of food each year to approximately 360 needy families and 160 senior citizens.


In 2020, because we can’t safely assemble and deliver food baskets, or have families come to the church to select gifts for their children, we will instead give vouchers for gifts, warm clothing and food to families who qualify for assistance, which are redeemable at local stores.


We rely on donations to provide for these families in need. Please consider making a monetary gift to the fund. Our mailing address is:

Potsdam Holiday Fund, Inc., PO Box 827, Potsdam
