2020 Holiday Season

Welcome! We’re glad you’re here. The holidays can be a difficult time of year and it means so much to us to be able to spread some cheer for our families. On this page, we’ve identified several ways that you can help. Our community support is what makes this time of year special and we truly couldn’t do it without you, thank you!

Please Note: Out of concern for reducing the amount of traffic in our office during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and for promoting dignity and the freedom of choice among our residents, we have made some changes to our holiday program. We are asking the community to mail in gift cards, in lieu of gifts, to be distributed to our families based on their requests.

Please see list below for the retailers that have been requested:

  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Kohl’s
  • Old Navy
  • Wawa
  • Dollar General
  • Giant
  • Weis
  • AMC Theaters
  • GameStop

You can drop off or mail your gift card(s) of either $25 or $50 in value by December 15th:

Sixth Street Shelter-Holiday Program

219 N. 6th St. 

Allentown, PA  18102

So that we can properly record and thank you for your gift, be sure to include your complete contact information with your donation.

Looking for other ways to connect this season? Consider sending a winter/secular greeting card to a family!

Simply address your card the same as above, specifying “Greeting Card Program,” instead of “Holiday Program.” You may send up to 25 cards and we will distribute so that each family receives at least one. If you would like to receive a card in exchange, be sure to include your return address on the outer envelope. Important: Please do not include gift cards with greeting cards.

We also have wish lists for direct ordering through Amazon!

Note: Amazon does not share donor information with us. If you would like a receipt for your gift, please get in touch and let us know what you ordered.
