Publishers Clearing House Gives Back For The Holidays!

Publishers Clearing House Gives Back

The season of giving is upon us and Publishers Clearing House employees are coming together to do all they can to make a difference.

Over the past couple of weeks, Publishers Clearing House employees gathered up some much needed items and donated them to an amazing charity called The INN. The INN, also known as the Interfaith Nutrition Network, is a charitable organization that serves hungry and homeless Long Islanders through soup kitchens, emergency shelters, and long-term housing programs. Founded in 1983 as a single soup kitchen run by a group of concerned volunteers, The INN now serves more than 400,000 meals annually to hungry children, adults, and seniors. Individuals who volunteer at The INN truly have love and compassion for others, and it is such an honor that we get to help them in their mission.

Having a hot hearty meal is very important, especially now when temperatures can easily dip below freezing. Knowing this, PCH employees came together and collected an amazing amount of food to donate to The INN including 200 cans of food, 150 boxes of pasta and rice, and 150 other food items. We also collected 2 jackets and 2 blankets that will provide some much-needed warmth this chilly season.

Publishers Clearing House Donation

Every year around Thanksgiving, Publishers Clearing House gives all of its employees a gift card to use towards their holiday meals. And every year, many PCH employees graciously give back their gift cards so they can be donated. This year was no different. Over $680 was collected in all from gift cards that PCH employees gave back. Publishers Clearing House has been using this money to buy even more food and necessities to donate to The Inn throughout the season.

Being able to help a great organization like The INN has been an amazing experience. It truly is our pleasure as PCH employees to be able to help those in need. If you would like to help the caring individuals at The INN and donate some items of your own, you can visit their website!

Happy Holidays everyone!

I give away hair cuts to those who don’t have the funds for it. I usually go through a few churches, and donate time to families without gifts for Christmas.

I noticed that I missed a few words to the comment already and that was, Regarding Beau Rivage Hotel & Casino, that we cannot make changes to those dates of Dec. 23-24-25-26 as they are Locked In Sorry about that.

That is so sweet. God bless PCH employees and The INN. We donate clothes, food and money to the church I go to. Nowadays, many stores offer opportunities to donate when you pay. What I need to do is get over my fear of needles and start donating blood.

Thank you Christa P., for that AWESOME letter to all of us!!! Go PCH!!! I love what you do for your community PCH!!!

I really do not have a lot of money this Holiday season, I wish I had more to give to charity. That is why I love when you have us vote for your favorite charities (Give Back). This just makes me feel wonderful and so very grateful for all that I have in my life. It is not much but I just keep on going forward in hopes that my number will be picked, you just have to think POSITIVE and VISUALIZING wonderful things will happen from all that I have entered at PCH!!!

I do hope you have a wonderful Holiday Ms. Christa P.!!!

We give back all year if possible. Instead of selling items we no longer need, we donate them to our local charity thrift shops, they sell the items and use the money to help family’s in the community! Wish we could do more but every little bit helps.

I feel that It’s very important to give to others – because giving to others shows where your Heart Is! If you can’t give to those less fortunate – then what’s the point of Giving period!

Giving has So Many aspects on Life – To be Self-ish is A Reflection On You — To Be Self-less has a wide range of Blessings!!!

God has Blessed each and Every one of Us with the Gift Of Giving – it’s Totally up to Us to do The right thing with the Gift!!!

It’s very commendable and good for PCH Fans to know that you do not just give away money but you give away part of your hearts to those who need simple human kindness.
It’s nice to give back not just during the holidays, because people are in need EVERYDAY and PCH you are Living Proof of Human Kindness. THANK YOU!

Hi! It’s great that PCH can help and does help as much as you do. I donate when I can, it usually isn’t much, but if every bit helps, then it’s worth it. When my children were young it was easy to donate, I had a slim boy, husky boy and a girl, needless to say they did not get to wear each others clothes or coats. Now I donate, small donations that won’t take from our family, but will help.

I really loved seeing the piece where you give back to help people who have to go and get food, i am one of the ones who have to get food, we are in a mess here so i had to break down and go get food a local church who helps out people, that’s why i always say if i win i will give back to the ones who helped us get through, or we would not have food to feed my kid’s, i thought that was awesome, i just wish i could be the one who puts food in there belly, but if i should win i would give back the lines of people you see each month here is bad, i just wish i could win to be able to give back .

I can only give to my grandchildren for Christmas. We won’t have a traditional Christmas meal but hotdogs,hamburgers and beans will fill up our tummies on this special day. Busses do not run on Christmas so my daughter, her husband and our 4 children will have a sleepover until the busses run again on the 26th.

Today, we took outgrown clothing to a 2nd hand store around the corner to get a discount on clothes for my young granddaughter. She is unable to wear her 3 older brothers outgrown clothes.

I try to teach them that although extras are minimal, we have love for each other given by God.

I wish to leave toys for “Toys For Tots” and all the organizations that have empty boxes …. Every year we gave to children all the toys my kids grew out of ….and of course I would love to send A merry Christmas to the children of Saint Jude! Thanks to PCH for all the hard work and the thoughts for all winners to help others make Life possible!
