Danbury Holiday Bureau seeking donations

This year the Ottawa County Holiday Bureau is celebrating 52 years of helping local residents. With the assistance and support of local schools, churches, businesses and lots of dedicated volunteers, they have been able to make the holidays a little better for many in this area.

In 2013, the Danbury Holiday Bureau alone was able to touch the lives of 121 families – that’s 350 individuals and 230 of those were children. This operation totally depends on donations and volunteers. The Danbury Holiday Bureau does not receive any government monies and 100% of all donations to Danbury Holiday Bureau, remains in Danbury Township.

Many volunteers are committed to collecting and purchasing food to distribute to people in the community. This can only be done by generous contributions from the community. Monetary donations can be made out to Danbury Holiday Bureau and mailed to 2259 E. Sand Rd. – Port Clinton, OH 43452.

For those wishing to donate non-perishable food items, please drop the items off at a local church or call 419-732-2333 by December 1.

For those needing assistance, please call 419-732-2333 to receive and application. All applications must be returned by December 1.
