Some Holly Jolly Elves helped make the season a bit brighter for young families at Haven House in Allentown. Peggy Coker provided funding through a Thrivent Action Team. Volunteers helped in serving dinner, assisted in taking pictures with Santa, coordinated Christmas Bingo and handed out gift bags to the children. Thanks to our KHMF volunteers: Barb, Tom & Tommy Hudak, Jill Tilney, John & Deborah Romig and Chris & Bill Hankee. We are proud to join Haven House Staff and volunteers in providing this Holiday family support event.
The Krysta Hankee Memorial Fund created the “Courses that Care-Miles that Matter” program to provide gasoline gift cards to support families medical care and other compelling needs within the family. Over $90,000.00 worth of Giant gas gift cards have provided 900,000 miles of travel for local families. Some of these families must choose between putting gas in the tank or food on the table. Help us reach our goal this year of 1,000,000 miles for families through our gas card program. Seasonal Sponsorships are available. Schedule & Sponsorships

Thanks to all who donated to our memorial fund on #Giving Tuesday! A total of 4,900 miles of driving will be able to be purchased in gas cards and 1 night of lodging for a family at the Gift of Life Family House. With one gas card we can give people hope and let them know others are thinking of them. This thank you note we recently received says it all!
