Please help the Eleanor Smylie Community Fund

Thanksgiving is here, followed by Black Friday.

Shoppers will be out in force, looking for gifts for Christmas and Hanukkah, which this year runs from Dec. 22-30.

However, some Northeast families don’t have the means to enjoy a holiday meal or gifts.

Fortunately, the Eleanor Smylie Community Fund is here to help. The fund is in its 71st year of providing support for needy folks in the Northeast.

Over the years, our readers have made donations to help thousands of their neighbors. All money collected is used to buy gift cards to provide holiday dinners and children’s gifts to Northeast families struggling to make ends meet.

We’ll publish your name in a list of donors. If you prefer to donate anonymously, we will honor that request.

If you would like to request help, or if you know of someone who could use assistance during the holidays, please take a few minutes to write a letter. The address is:

Eleanor Smylie Community Fund

2 Executive Campus

Suite 135

Cherry Hill, NJ 08002

Include a name and contact information for an agency or person for verification.

Everything about the process will remain anonymous.

If you are able to donate, please send a check to the Eleanor Smylie Community Fund at the address above. Any amount will help.

Thank you for your consideration. ••
