The Copley Township Share a Christmas Program
Copley Township will be accepting monetary donations this year for the annual Share a Christmas Program. We will accept gift cards and checks made out to Copley Township. The COVID-19 virus has changed many things - including how we will be conducting this very important event.
Due to safe distancing and other recommendations from the State and Summit County we will be accepting donations in the form of cash, check, or gift cards only. This program has helped hundreds of families in years past and we thank you for all the wonderful toys and donations that have been given, however, in order to lessen the spread of COVID-19, toys will not be collected at any of our drop off locations. Your monetary donations will be given to the over three hundred families we anticipate helping this year due to so many families being out of work and struggling. Checks can be made out to Copley Township Share a Christmas. All proceeds will be used to buy gift cards so parents may purchase the presents that are listed on the kids’ wish lists.
Our hope is that we can come together as a community and help those who are less fortunate in these unpredictable times. If you have any questions, please call Beth Siddall at the Town Hall at 330-666-1853. Kiwanis and the Outreach Center in Copley will continue to participate providing for families in the area who have young ones, or school age children in the Copley Fairlawn school district. All donations will stay locally to help our neighbors.
For those needing assistance, applications are available on line and at the Town Hall front desk. Interview times will be announced on line as well as on the sign at the circle. The Share a Christmas distribution date is Saturday, December 12th from 9:00 to 11:30 at the Spring Garden Waldorf School on Jacoby Road. All participants will be given their gift cards while remaining in their cars.
We thank you for your caring and generosity. Together, we can make this a better holiday for a lot of families in need.
