The Fund to Benefit Children & Youth is often the last hope for those in need–providing abused, neglected, and at-risk children and their families in Lehigh and Northampton Counties with the items and services that traditional community and government sources cannot provide because they lack funding or are not mandated to provide them.
Things like beds and cribs; winter coats, school uniforms, and sneakers; summer school and specialized summer camps; eyeglasses and dental care.
And the way we spend the contributions that our donors make is very important, too.
EVERY WEEK THE FUND MEETS NEEDS LIKE THIS:
