The enduring partnership between New Hope-Solebury Key Club and Fisherman’s Mark ensures no household will go untouched by the holiday season’s spirit of giving.
This year, the Key Club will continue its more than two decades of making the holidays much happier and less stressful for children, their parents and elderly clients of Fisherman’s Mark.
Come December, volunteers and teenagers with the Key Club will fill requests from the local community, adopting several hundred children and over 50 seniors for the holidays.
The requests on The Adopt-a-Child wish list range from winter apparel and accessories to toys and educational items.
The program began adopting seniors five years ago and many of the participants like giving to the elderly as it reminds them of a loved one; gifts to them include bedding, clothing and kitchen items.
Fisherman’s Mark’s Executive Director Jennifer Williford said of the Adopt-A-Child Program, “If it weren’t for this program, our clients would not be able to have gifts under the tree for their children. Truly one of the most special Days of the year for us is when our clients pick up gifts for their children. They can’t express their thanks enough. We are so grateful for this partnership that we have with the New Hope-Solebury Key Club.”
Key Club Parent Coordinator Robin Hepp said, “We feel so fortunate to run a program that has helps up to 300 children and seniors in need during the holidays. We love how people love helping other people. With the help of our local parents, teachers, students and businesses, this program has been successful for over 23 years.”
