Information for Donors Information for Agencies
The Volunteer Center is proud once again to sponsor the All Wrapped Up Holiday Giving Program, which matches individuals and families in need with willing donors from the community. This program has proven an effective way to ensure that the neediest people are remembered at holiday time.
Our holiday program continues to be a great success. Last year, 734 families and 850 individuals, referred by 33 Bergen County non-profit agencies, were "adopted" by other families, individuals, community groups and companies. Over 990 donors from the community responded with contributions of gifts, gift certificates, toys, clothing and household items, totaling more than $270,000. Almost 3,400 people coping with illness, unemployment, isolation, domestic abuse and poverty were helped by these generous donors.
The Holiday Hotline officially opens Monday, November 2, 2015. At that time, we will begin matching donors with people referred by area agencies.
Thank you and best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season!
The Staff of the Volunteer Center of Bergen County
