How Do I Give Back to My Community?

Find your local volunteering and philanthropic opportunities here.

During the holiday season, there is no shortage of opportunities to help those in need in our community. Though we are most charitable during the holidays, help is needed year round. 

We here at Emmaus Patch want to make is as easy as possible for these charity drives, fundraisers, volunteer openings, and other opportunities to be found – and for you to find them.

If you know of an opportunity, post it to our Giving Back in East Penn section. It can be anything from a Girl Scouts' bake sale to a fundraiser to help an ailing friend with medical costs to holiday coat drives to, well, anything charitable that helps our community! 

Here's how to post:
  1. Sign in to your free Patch account (or use your Facebook account).
  2. Visit the Giving Back in East Penn section.
  3. Click "Write a new post."
  4. Give your post a solid headline, text and, if possible, add a photo to jazz it up a bit. (This will also make it easier for us to share your post!)

If you have any questions, contact Jennifer Marangos at jennifer.marangos@patch.com
