2020 IDL Providing the Necessary Extra

2020 Necessary Extra Campaign

IDL is partnering with Inspired Hearts and Hands Inc. (IH2) in serving families in Butler and Allegheny Counties that are in great need of our support.    We will help IH2 provide more than 600 families with Holiday Meal Baskets and nearly 800 children, veterans, and elderly with gifts for the holidays.

This is a big undertaking, but together, we can make a difference, and we sincerely hope that you will consider joining us.  COVID 19 has been hard on all of us, but in particular, these children have suffered in the midst of this pandemic.

How Can You Help?

TOGETHER...We Can Make A Difference!

Join us in providing needing families with a little something special for the holidays.  IH2 has collected wish lists for nearly 850 children, women, veterans, and elderly in the communities we serve, and we need your help to provide a very special holiday for those who need it most in our community.

The angel tree tags are each listed in this SignUp link.  To select an individual  from the available tags, sign-up and follow the prompts.  Special details regarding gift return are listed below. Please note, all gifts that are returned to the office are to be dropped off UNWRAPPED and have the corresponding tag attached so that we can get them matched up appropriately.
