Fundraising

We work year-round to raise the necessary funds to purchase the items that are provided to our families.

How We Fundraise:

Station Sales

Our Station Fundraising Sales are the biggest fundraisers we do!

From March to September, our building is converted into a store filled with fabulous donations of used and new items from the community. The funds we raise from these sales support all of our programs!

Our 2022 Station Sales have finished but will return on Saturday, March 4th, 2023.

Remember our organization as you do some early spring cleaning next year! We will begin accepting donations from February 7th, 2023 through the end of July. Please see our Station Sales page for items we do not accept.

Grants

During the year, we apply for grants that we qualify for as a non-profit organization. 

Bedford Welcome Center’s Festival of Trees

Our decorated Christmas Tree at the 2021 Festival of Trees

The Bedford Welcome Center holds the “Festival of Trees” each year during the Christmas season. The Christmas Station participates by designing a tree for display.

The Festival of Trees is free to attend and is family-friendly. Visitors are encouraged to bring money to vote for their favorite tree(s). All proceeds are given to the designated charities at the conclusion of the event.
