2020 Holiday Donation Drive

Delaware County Estate Planning 2020 Holiday Donation Drive

IN DECEMBER OF 2020, THE DELAWARE COUNTY ESTATE PLANNING COUNCIL AND THE MEDIA BRANCH OF REPUBLIC BANK HELD OUR ANNUAL FUND RAISING EFFORT TO HELP THOSE STRUGGLING TO GET BY AND PROVIDE FOR THEIR LOVED ONES DURING THIS MOST CHALLENGING HOLIDAY SEASON.

The Delaware County Estate Planning Council was thrilled to partner with Republic Bank Media Branch for the 2020 Holiday Donation Drive to benefit the Children and Youth Services (CYS) of Delaware County and the Media Food Bank.

Due to the challenges of the COVID-19 Pandemic we collected donations of dry goods, food or other items this year. Members and friends of the Estate Planning Council and Republic Bank contributed gift cards and monetary gifts.

Gift cards such as Walmart, Target, Supermarkets (Acme, Giant, Shop Rite) Visa or Mastercard, and checks payable to the “Media Food Bank”  or to “The Citizens Advisory Committee” for CYS of Delaware County were mailed to DCEPC, Attn: Donna Willis, PO Box 2083, Media, PA 19063 or dropped off at Republic Bank, Media Branch - 448 E Baltimore Pike  Media, PA 19063. We asked that all gifts be sent to arrive by 12/13/20 in order to have the donations timely sent to the Donees.

Media Food Bank has been providing food and clothing for needy local families in and around the Media area for many years as part of the outreach program at the First United Methodist Church of Media, 350 W State St, Media, PA 19063, Phone: (484) 442-0033.

Children and Youth Services (CYS) works directly with children and families in times of crisis, providing “a wide range of services to abused and neglected children from birth to age 18, and their families.”  They provide coverage throughout all townships of Delaware County, with offices in Upper Darby and Eddystone.  For more information on the vital role of CYS within Delaware County’s Department of Human Services, please visit http://www.delcohsa.org/childrenyouthservices.html
