Holiday Programs for Families in Need

Would you like to be sure that your charitable contribution really benefits those in need? Would you like to see your donation help local families? Perhaps a neighbor has had a bad year, or your child may have a needy classmate.

Copley Township, Copley-Fairlawn Kiwanis and the Copley Outreach Center work together on programs to assist families in need during the Holiday season. Through donations, the Township is able to provide toy and gift items for children; Copley-Fairlawn Kiwanis is able to provide food baskets; and the Copley Outreach Center is able to provide coats, hats and gloves.

Copley Township is currently accepting donations of cash and new, unwrapped toys for its annual "Share A Christmas” Program. Donations will be accepted at the Copley Town Hall, 1540 S. Cleveland-Massillon Road now through Wednesday, December 14th. Checks and money orders may also be mailed to Copley Town Hall. Please make checks payable to Copley Township.

Last year over two hundred children who may not have received anything at all under their Christmas trees awoke to find an assortment of toy and gift items on Christmas morning. More than 80 local families received generous food baskets.

Application forms for assistance and further information are available online at . The deadline to apply is Monday, December 12. For more information call 330-666-4218 or email

These programs are for families residing in Copley and/or the Copley-Fairlawn school district only. Proof of residency is required. 100% of the dollars raised benefit those in need. Please help us make the Holiday Season a little brighter for those not as fortunate as ourselves by giving generously.
