Northeast Times

Fund aids 103 families, more help needed

Be­cause of the kind­ness of our read­ers, the North­east Times this week was able to mail gift cards to 103 fam­il­ies who have let us know that they could use a little help at Christ­mas time.

The $50 gift cards — good at Shop­Rite and Wal­mart — are in­ten­ded to help these fam­il­ies buy the in­gredi­ents for a good hol­i­day din­ner and pur­chase a toy for each of their chil­dren. 

We are grate­ful to our read­ers who are in a po­s­i­tion to give. Over and over again, they’ve told us they want to be sure each child has at least one gift wait­ing un­der the tree on Christ­mas morn­ing.

This an­nu­al ap­peal, now called the North­east Times’ Elean­or Smylie Fund, was launched 57 years ago. Last year, we were able to help nearly 120 fam­il­ies. The need this year seems to be even great­er. 

If you can help, please send your checks to the Elean­or Smylie Com­munity Fund, 2512 Met­ro­pol­it­an Drive, Tre­vose, PA 19053. 

Happy hol­i­days to all!
