York PA Charities

Thanks in large part to the still-struggling economy, need in the York area has been great this year. New users fueled part of that increase. Many more children have been eating at Our Daily Bread as more middle-class families have been relying on the kitchen.
More people have lost their jobs, they have to keep a roof over their heads, and they need a car. If they can find food, that's a huge expense off their back.
At Our Daily Bread, they've served about 67,000 meals in 2010. That's the most in more than a decade.
While the recent cold snap has driven additional people indoors to the warmth of the soup kitchen and other charities, the good news is there's a lot of help available during the holiday season because more people take the time to volunteer or donate this time of the year.
Our Daily Bread accepts food donations, but money is most needed to help pay for utilities. Call Paula Koch at 848-1674.
York Rescue Mission is collecting nonperishable food items, including pastas, spaghetti sauce, canned vegetables, soups and meats, oatmeal and grits. Call Ada Hite at 812-1692.
The United Way of York County is collecting money to be used for service programs at 73 partner agencies. Call executive director Robert Woods at 843-0957 or go to

Toys for Tots

It's hard to believe that Christmas is just a little more than three weeks away. Wow, where does the time go? It seems like we just saw an end to summer. With Thanksgiving already behind us and the new year just ahead, once again this year The Pilgrim Team at Professional Realty Associates is using the office as a drop-off point for the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. You can find our office and drop-off your toys at 3921 E Market St., York, PA 17402.

In Lancaster County we offer Stone Mill Estates. Call us for help with all your real estate needs.

For those of you wondering just how the Toys for Tots Program works and who benefits from it, I have copied the Mission, Goal, Objectives, and Activities from their website. They are as follows:

MISSION:The mission of the U. S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.

GOAL:The primary goal of Toys for Tots is to deliver, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens.

OBJECTIVES:The objectives of Toys for Tots are to help less fortunate children throughout the United States experience the joy of Christmas; to play an active role in the development of one of our nation’s most valuable resources – our children; to unite all members of local communities in a common cause for three months each year during the annual toy collection and distribution campaign; and to contribute to better communities in the future.

ACTIVITIES:The principal Toys for Tots activity which takes place each year is the collection and distribution of toys in the communities in which a Marine Corps Reserve Unit is located. In communities without a Reserve Unit, the campaign can be conducted by a Marine Corps League Detachment or group of men and women, generally veteran Marines, authorized by Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to conduct a local Toys for Tots campaign. Local Toys for Tots Campaign Coordinators conduct an array of activities throughout the year, which include golf tournaments, foot races, bicycle races and other voluntary events designed to increase interest in Toys for Tots, and concurrently generate toys and monetary donations.

Let's all remember the real reason for the season and do our part to help bring a little peace and joy to those less fortunate than ourselves.

Have a Wonderful Holiday Season and may this coming year bring Peace and Joy to Everyone!
