Donations are currently being taken to support the effort, which gives toys and food to each family.
“Any donations will be accepted,” said Glenn Angus, Harmony Township chairman.
Project Holiday Dreams started in 2009 during the Christmas season as a memory that Glenn Angus shared with his son Jeremy Angus.
The memory Glenn Angus shared was how, years ago, the Harmony commissioners used to do something for the underprivileged families in the township during the holidays. Father and son discussed how they could revive the initiative and decided to start it as a family charity that holiday season.
Fast-forward six years later and the Angus family has continued the tradition of organizing and donating to the program, which started with five families and has grown every year. Last year there were 36 families.
On Dec. 21, Harmony Township will again provide the transportation and delivery trucks will head out to deliver cheer to the homes of the families with a team of volunteers in each one.
The program is funded through donations from individuals and businesses.
Donations can be mailed to 1053 Norwood Avenue, Ambridge, PA 15003.
