Sponsoring A Child

... ever caring, ever sharing

Our Mission

The Delaware Valley Children’s Charity is dedicated to bringing relief and assistance to children and families in need throughout the Delaware Valley.  We have said time and again that a new winter coat or bag of toys may not change a life, but it can change a heart, and that is where it all begins.

 People caring about people, giving cause to hope and to believe.

Who we are

Our organization works directly and solely to better the lives of underprivileged children.  For the past twenty-eight years, our annual Holiday Program has brought warmth and joy to thousands of area children in need.  In 1991, The Delaware Valley Children’s Charity formally organized into a not for profit group, allowing the caring and sharing to continue 365 days a year.  Since that time, we have assisted with requests from heating oil to hearing aids, and everything in between.  The most basic of necessities are so often out of reach for those less fortunate; and equally as often they simply go without.

Along with our sponsors, volunteers and contributors, we continue to work toward making these already difficult lives a bit brighter.

This website is intended to offer specific help and guidance for those participating in our 2013 Holiday Program.  Welcome!

  We have gone green...
This being our 28th Holiday Program, many things are completely different now than they were with our very first Angel Tree...Semi trucks, rather than our own cars...over 6,000 children, rather than 6...and on and on.  Our greatest change for this year is that we have gone green!  The many pieces of paper literature that used to be included in the sponsor packet are no more.  Have no fear, however, as all of that information can be found right here, on our website! Simply click on the 'I'm Sponsoring a Child!' tab.

From our hearts to all of yours, and from every one of the children who would do so themselves if they could, we offer our deepest gratitude.

Thank you for your interest in the Delaware Valley Children's Charity! If you have any questions, or would like further information on how you might become more involved within your community, please contact us.
