About Give A Christmas

During the holiday season, the Burlington County Times and the Willingboro Rotary Club partner to collect and distribute monetary donations to assist struggling local families. The 2017 holiday season is the 50th anniversary of the Give A Christmas fund.

The fund was first established in 1968 and since that time more than $3 million has been collected for families in need. This year’s fund goal is $80,000.

Burlington County residents with children age 17 and younger are eligible to be considered for assistance; requests must be made by parents or legal guardians and include the names and ages of their children.

In 2016, donors contributed $72,697 to the Burlington County Times Give A Christmas fund. The Willingboro Rotary Club provided assistance to 903 families with a total of $87,570 in support.
