Every year about this time Betty Jo Lyons, Boro Women and Family Services (BWS) Executive Director and her team of volunteers begin planning for Christmas. This planning helps them provide a more meaningful Christmas for over 100 individuals and families in our community.
As you might imagine this takes a tremendous effort to gather the needed items and financial resources to pull it all together. It’s probably no surprise to anyone either that this years effort is a bit more difficult than most. The demand is sure to be higher due to the effect on families that the Covid problem has caused, and also the very simple fact that the BWS finances have fallen short this year. Two of their very major fundraisers, the Annual Lasagna Dinner and the Fall Women’s Event at Nick’s Place, had to be cancelled because of Covid 19.
BWS is sending out a plea to the Edinboro Area Community for funds to help them complete their Christmas holiday mission. If you can assist in any way, no matter how small or large a gift, it would be appreciated more than the BWS team could express to you.
Donations can be done online at the BWS website: www.BoroWomenServices.com or by mailing your donation to: Boro Women & Family Services, 108 High Street, Edinboro, PA 16412
