‘Invest in You’ Supports Holiday Hope Chests

Bring a Friend to Our Shoebox Packing Party

Lehigh Valley ladies, get into the holiday giving spirit and enjoy each other’s company at our second annual “Invest in You” shoebox packing party. MtM Financial Group invites you to help us support Holiday Hope Chests, a program by the Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley to collect boxes of small gifts for children.

Invest in You is MtM’s quarterly series of gatherings for women to socialize, share, learn—and support good causes in our community. They’re hosted by financial advisor Alyssa Young and Megan Smale, our director of client communications.

In December 2021, our shoebox packing party was our inaugural Invest in You event. We donated 51 boxes of gifts to Holiday Hope Chests! Please help us pack even more shoeboxes this year. It’s a fun night of fellowship and food while we help make kids’ Christmas a little more merry.

Who: YOU + Your Friends

What: Food, Wine, Friends & Holiday Hope Chests

When: 6-7:30 p.m. Thurs. Dec. 1, 2022

Where: Community room at the Bethlehem Township Volunteer Fire. Co., next door to the MtM Financial Group office: 4519 Hanoverville Road, Bethlehem (L. Nazareth Twp.)

We’ll get together for dinner, dessert and wine while we gather donations, fill and wrap Holiday Hope Chests shoeboxes. Our MtM team will deliver the donations to the Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley, which will ensure they’re distributed to kids in our area this holiday season.

Use the parking lot behind the fire company building, where there is a rear entrance to the community room.

Please sign up to bring a donation to pack in the shoeboxes, and bring your contribution—plus an empty shoebox, if you have one. Come hungry and ready to meet new people and share some laughs! We’ll have fun while helping children in our community.
