Did you know Hooktown Holidays is an organization that is active year round? We are focused on our mission every day.
Hooktown Holidays is a community organization created to serve the needs of the less fortunate in Warren County. Although we started during the holiday season in 2013, we are not just a yearly event. We are a proactive charity that works year round to fulfill our mission. Every day counts and every penny serves! Here's the full story.
In February 2013, after experiencing first-hand through volunteer work how many of our community members are in difficult financial need, several friends in the Hooktown neighborhood of Warren, PA got together to see if we could make a difference. Hooktown Holidays was born. The concept went far beyond anyone's expectations.
We thought to raise a couple hundred dollars and that would be that. Instead, to our amazement and joy, we received a total of $5,000.00 to give back to the community. Our Hooktown Holidays supporters grew rapidly over the years. Our unique "subscription" method of donating made it easy and fun for many to contribute without straining the weekly budget.
In 2014 Hooktown Holidays incorporated and created a board of directors. We are a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and donations are tax-deductible as allowed by U.S. law. We support those in need in our community through several local service organizations. The recipient organizations are chosen based on their ability to meet and fulfill the goals of our mission statement.
2020, although challenging, promises to even more successful as people from all over the country who have fond rememberances of growing up in the Hooktown neighborhood of Warren PA reach out to share their great hope that everyone in our community has a decent life. We hope you will join us.
"Our mission is to provide nutritious food, warm clothing, and other necessities of life to children, families and other individual in need in our community."
