Some Places to Donate this Season of Giving

From turkeys and ham to time and cash, there are many local organizations that could use your help this season.

1. T&E Care just wrapped up a holiday gift drive which met 100% of the requests the group was hoping to meet. The local organization, which is dedicated to helping families in Tredyffrin and Easttown meet immediate and short term needs while they get back on their feet, can always use cash donations. The T&E Care website says they are also looking for turkey and ham donations to round out Christmas dinners. Click here for the full details on helping with the holiday dinners.

4. In the Red Cross Holiday Catalogue you can make a donation in someone else’s name, but the money is used to buy specific items found in the catalogue.
