Northeast Times

Please donate to the Eleanor Smylie Community Fund

Dear Read­er:

The North­east Times, a sis­ter pub­lic­a­tion of Star, this week is launch­ing its 57th an­nu­al Elean­or Smylie Com­munity Fund, which aids our neigh­bors in the North­east and sur­round­ing sub­urbs.

We are ask­ing you once again donate so we can provide a hol­i­day din­ner and Christ­mas or Ha­nukkah gifts for those who can’t af­ford them.

Write the pa­per a let­ter and tell us what help you or your fam­ily needs at Christ­mas, and we’ll do our best to ar­range some re­lief for you. Or tell us of an­oth­er de­serving per­son or fam­ily.

Last year, the fund was able to provide hol­i­day meals, toys or gifts to 117 fam­il­ies and as­sist three so­cial ser­vice agen­cies. That num­ber was an in­crease over the 82 fam­il­ies that were helped the year be­fore.

Send let­ters telling us what you need to: The North­east Times Elean­or Smylie Com­munity Fund, 2512 Met­ro­pol­it­an Drive., Tre­vose, PA 19053. Please provide us with a name and phone num­ber of a per­son or agency we can con­tact to veri­fy your cir­cum­stances.

And those of you who want to give a dona­tion or ad­opt a fam­ily, please send your con­tri­bu­tion to the Elean­or Smylie Com­munity Fund, at the same ad­dress.

Lil­lian Swan­son, The North­east Times ed­it­or-in-chief
