The Wayne County Children’s Christmas Bureau Announces Sign-Up Dates.
Happy Holidays! Our annual program is warming up with the “Community at Heart”! The Wayne County Children’s Christmas Bureau administers this seasonal program which helps hundreds of Wayne County families enjoy their Christmas morning.
The Bureau operates solely on donations and depends upon the wonderful and historic generosity of the Wayne County community. The need is especially great this year and no donation is too small. You can adopt a family or make a single donation to help the cause. Please know that every child helped is from Wayne County therefore, 100% of your donations stay local. Donation checks are greatly appreciated and should be made payable to WCCCB. Please mail them to the WCCCB, 200 Delaware Street, Honesdale, PA 18431.

ADOPT A FAMILY!!! A family, organization, group, club or even a communal gathering of friends can “Adopt A Family” for Christmas. Your generosity will help make the Holiday Season bright for the families using the Wayne County Children’s Christmas Bureau. The good feelings you generate will last well beyond the holiday season. When a group adopts a Wayne County family, the joy and responsibilities are shared amongst the group. This is truly a tangible way to bring special meaning back to the Holiday Season. Please join your neighbors in this heart-warming community project for our children. Call or e-mail the Wayne County Children’s Christmas Bureau@ (570) 881-8382 as soon as possible and say, “We want to adopt a family this Christmas!” or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Wayne County Children’s Christmas Bureau thanks all of the amazing people in this County for their terrific support….every year!
