There’s a culture of volunteerism at Willow Valley Communities among residents and team members alike. The generosity is quite evident in the amazing total of $52,915 donated last year for our various Community Outreach projects. Our mission of helping children in need enhanced the lives of over 1,700 children throughout Lancaster County during 2019.
In a thank you letter, about our donation of sneakers, received from the children’s program coordinator of the Domestic Violence Shelter; she stated: “The children were so excited to receive their new sneakers. It was so thoughtful of you to include a pair of socks with each pair of shoes; an extra surprise for the children and greatly needed as some leave their homes with very little belongings. Your donations have truly made a difference in the lives of many children.”
A few of the upcoming projects for this year include our 4th Annual Cornhole for a Cause Tournament on April 25th and Project Warmth in the fall, helping children in need stay warm by providing them with a new coat.
The infographic below shows the number of donors, amounts raised for each project, the number of gifts distributed, and the organizations that benefited from our 2019 projects.
