Photos of Holiday Lights Mean Donations to Local Food Banks

Print More

If you drive around Saucon Valley–or just about anywhere in the Lehigh Valley–you’ll see dozens of sparkling Christmas light displays at this time of year. Some are loud, some are subtle, some are big and some are more modest, but all of them are a feast for tired, perhaps even world-weary eyes.

Since many people admire these amateur displays and look forward to driving around to see them during the holidays each year, here at Saucon Source we recently asked you to submit photos of your displays to us for publication. To those of you who did, thank you.

In exchange for doing that, we committed to donate $1 per photo to help the two local food banks in Lower Saucon Township, which are located at New Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church and Ebenezer New Reformed Church. Two other family-owned local businesses, Heintzelman Funeral Home of Hellertown and Bob’s Valley Wide Carpet Care of Bethlehem, have generously agreed to match the amount of money Saucon Source is donating to the food banks. That total also includes $10 in recognition of each Saucon Valley football player who was recognized this season as a Player of the Week and/or a Krunch Award winner on Saucon Source.


The 14 Saucon Valley football team members who were 2018 Krunch Award winners and/or Player of the Week recipients, pictured at the team’s annual end-of-season banquet at Saucon Valley Acres on Dec. 2. Pictured at right is Saucon Source publisher Josh Popichak.

Those players were Tim Weaver, Jared Harka, Aiden Renninger, Kelvin Gallard, Curtis Clifford, Patrick Morrissey, Ty Csencsits, Ian Csicsek, Evan Deily, Justin Kyra, Ryan Holub, Dante Mahaffey, Dale Sorensen and “the Hogs” (collectively). Saucon Source will be donating a total of $154 to the food banks: $140 for the 14 players, and $14 for the 14 submitted photos.

We hope you enjoy these photos of local light displays at homes and businesses and have a very merry Christmas and a happy holiday season.

Saucon Source is also committed to helping local families stay warm this winter through its initiative “Project Keep Hellertown Warm,” which you can learn more about here. Project Keep Hellertown Warm provides free hats, gloves, scarves and socks to individuals and families via a collection point on the Saucon Rail Trail at the Water Street crossing in Hellertown.
