Support the United Way of Adams County this Holiday Season at Breakfast with Santa
Published November 28, 2010
We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! The past couple days here in Gettysburg have been so much fun. Last night was the Annual Christmas Parade and tree lighting. Town really feels like the holidays now and the cold weather leaves no doubt that the season is here.
As I had mentioned in my previous post, the Gettysburg Hotel is holding their Annual Breakfast with Santa on December 11th. All proceeds are donated to the United Way of Adams County.
A note from Gettysburg Hotel Executive Chef Shelley Funt:
To Our Friends:
It won’t be long before the temperatures dip and the snow flies–the employees of the Historic Gettysburg Hotel are busy
planning this year’s special Breakfast With Santa. The challenges facing our families and our communities are great. More people are struggling in our communties than ever before. Did you know that 1 in 6 children in Adams County live in poverty? Or that the number of families shopping at the food pantry is up 24% since January?
Breakfast with Santa benefits the United Way of Adams County and its partners to
ensure the services safety net is there for our children and families. Our goal is to raise $5000 from the event through admissions, advertising and sponsorships. You can help by sending a gift to the United Way, providing a camera-ready ad for the children’s coloring book, or by sponsoring the costs of the breakfast, pictures or gifts given to each child to take home.
A little bit about the United Way from their website:
While UWAC is known for mobilizing volunteers and donors to advance the work of health and human service agencies, we also activate resources beyond the agencies we fund:
• We’re the local fiscal agent for federal Emergency Food and Shelter Programs.
• We’re the toy workshop for the Holiday Family Outreach.
• We distribute the food collected during the annual Postal Food Drive.
• We’re the broker for countless in-kind items collected during the Martin Luther King, Jr., Day On Project.
• And we’re the Adams County Volunteer Connection.
Your gift to United Way of Adams County’s Community Care Fund makes all this—and much more!—possible. Please support the United Way campaign generously. Your investment in caring will change lives and communities.
