Bringing joy to hundreds of children in need each year.

Each year, the Potsdam Holiday Fund helps to make the holidays happier for hundreds of families who need our help.

In 2018, we provided 537 children with gifts, books, and warm clothing; and distributed food baskets and vouchers to 307 families and 155 senior citizens.

To do all of this, we partner with more than 50 local merchants who set up “giving trees,” hundreds of generous donors who contribute cash and gifts, and dozens of dedicated volunteer “elves” drawn from all across our community. As an all-volunteer organization, we’re proud that 96 cents of every dollar we raise goes directly to help those we serve.

It’s easy to help! You can:

• Make a donation toward the purchase of gifts, warm clothing, and food.

• Sponsor or participate in fund-raising events like the Hobble-Gobble Prediction Run/Walk on Saturday, November 23, 2019.

• Adopt a Giving Tree to display in your place of business, or select a Giving Tree tag and buy a gift for an individual child.

• Join our energetic volunteer “elves” to wrap gifts, deliver food baskets, or assist parents as they select items for their children.

Thank you so much! We hope you have a warm and wonderful holiday.
