GLVR Holding Donation Drive for the Children's Home of Easton

The Greater Lehigh Valley REALTORS® Diversity and Community Involvement Committee is collecting items for the Children's Home of Easton.

The Children's Home of Easton is a nonprofit organization established in 1885 that provides comprehensive care through professional staff who guide, support, and encourage children to believe in their own self worth and reach their full potential. The home serves dependent, neglected, and traumatized children who due to circumstances beyond their control are unable to remain at home and/or with their family. They work with both the children and their family of origin to achieve permanency and independence. Staff strives to prepare each child to cope effectively with the realities of life and to become a productive member of society. The goal is to build, strengthen, and preserve every family's full potential. The Children's Home of Easton is dedicated to creating family solutions while teaching and remaining true to their four pillars: compassion, respect, integrity and perseverance.

The Children's Home of Easton created an Amazon Wish List that you can easily shop, order, and deliver straight to them. Find the Wish List here. The list includes items like bedding, home essentials, pack 'n plays, baby gates, and more.

Not included on the list, but very much needed, are duffel and small luggage bags. Garbage bags are currently being utilized when the children come and go from the Children's Home. Members can contact the Children's Home directly to schedule a drop-off of duffel and luggage bag donations (Kristin Frampton - kristinf@thechildrenshome.org or 610-258-2831, ext. 153).

Should you have any questions about the donation drive, please contact Matthew Marks, GLVR’s Government Affairs Director and liaison to the Diversity and Community Involvement Committee, at Matthew@GLVR.org.

The association’s donation drive will be open through the end of the year (December 31, 2021).
