Give Where You Live
As the holidays approach, here are a few local charities worthy of noting:
The Natural Lands Trust
(Media, PA) is the region’s oldest and largest non-profit conservation organization, protecting the forests, fields, wetlands, and streams that are essential to the sustainability and quality of life in eastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey.

Operation Brotherly Love (Philadelphia, PA) is a completely non-profit winter carnival held just before Christmas for underprivileged families in Philadelphia. At the event, there are food, games, entertainment, wrapped gifts for every family member, and a new winter coat for all the children who attend.
To donate, make checks payable to the Fund for Philadelphia and forward to the event founder Adam Schall at Wawa, Inc.
