Help 100 Local Families Have Happy and Hopeful Holidays!

Make a donation today and give the gift of a hot meal this Thanksgiving and Christmas

$24,739 raised

$10,000 goal

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

Side by side, we can make this a holiday season of hope for so many!

Each year, Seton Center hosts a Helping Hands program for local families. Participants will receive $50-$75 in grocery gift cards at Thanksgiving and/or Christmas, as well as the opportunity to choose a toy for each child ages infant-12 years old or a $25-$50 gift card for children 13-17.

Over the last few years, our needs have increased as the number of families applying to the program grows. This year, amid the pandemic and economic woes our nation faces, we expect the trend to continue.

Can we count on you to be there with us, giving hope for the holidays?

We will use your generous gift to purchase gift cards in $25 increments from Jubilee, Food Lion, and Weis for families to use toward their holiday meal. We will also purchase Walmart and Target gift cards on your behalf for teenage participants at Christmas.

With you on our side, we will make this Thanksgiving and Christmas happy and hopeful for a lot of families!

*If you would like to send $25 gift cards from these select stores in lieu of a cash donation, please mail them or drop them off to Seton Center at 226 East Lincoln Ave, Emmitsburg, MD 21727.
