Christmas Drive Benefits Local Community Organizations

December 17, 2020

This holiday season, the Gettysburg Foundation gave back to our local community in several areas.

Gettysburg Foundation staff members volunteered to ring the bell on Wednesday, Dec. 9, at WalMart as part of The Salvation Army’s annual Red Kettle Campaign that benefits those in need here in Adams County.

The Foundation staff participated in the holiday food drive benefiting South Central Community Action Programs (SCCAP), which assists local displaced families.

Staff members handcrafted Christmas cards for residents in The Gardens at Gettysburg nursing home. As the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed life inside of senior living and rehabilitation communities, the Foundation staff helped spread holiday cheer by making handmade holiday cards for those who will not see their family over the holidays.

The Gettysburg Foundation distributed the food to SCCAP and the holiday cards to The Gardens at Gettysburg on Dec. 15.

The Gettysburg Foundation staff is pleased to give back to our community. This is the fifth holiday season the Foundation’s Christmas drive has benefitted SCCAP, the second season benefitting The Salvation Army and the first season benefitting The Gardens at Gettysburg.
