Community fund seeks donations to help local families in need

The Times’ 68th annual Eleanor Smylie Community Fund is helping local families during the holiday season.

Each year, the Times asks its readers to contribute to the fund. All money collected is used to buy gift cards to provide holiday dinners and/or gifts to those who are struggling to make ends meet.

Each donation is making a difference, regardless of the amount. The Times publishes your name in a list of donors. If you prefer to donate anonymously, we will honor that request.

Gift cards to local supermarkets are being mailed to individuals and social service organizations that help the less fortunate.

Among those we’ve heard from is a disabled mother of two boys from Castor Gardens and a Mayfair mother of four whose husband can’t work full time after being hit by a car.

If you are able to donate, please send a check, as we will be distributing gift cards as late as Saturday, which is Christmas Eve and the day before the start of Hanukkah.

The address is:

Eleanor Smylie Community Fund

2 Executive Campus

Suite 400

Cherry Hill, NJ 08002

Any amount will help.
