Community Cares Certificate

Pocono Mountains United Way halaunched the Community Cares Certificate fundraiser to support families in need as well as locally owned establishments. Simply donate in increments of $25 AND list the local establishment that you want to support.* There are no administration or overhead fees. 

Every $25 donation provides a $25 gift certificate to a local restaurant for a family or individual in need.

Donate now on GoFundMe

We would like to specially thank Kiwanis Club of the Stroudsburgs for their $3,000 contribution to this program, and Kiwanis Club of the Poconos - Daybreak for their $1,000 contribution to this program (and contribution to our Crisis Response Fund).  We have now raised $7,150 for our Community Cares Certificates program, exceeding our goal of $5,000!

*Local establishment must be able to produce and mail certificates as directed by Pocono Mountains United Way. If chosen restaurant cannot provide a certificate, another restaurant will be chosen.  Certificates will be provided to individuals and families that are existing clients of Women's Resources, Pocono Services for Families and Children, Pocono Area Transitional Housing, Salvation Army, Red Cross, Pleasant Valley Ecumenical Network and Pocono Mountains United Way.
