As a community, we strive to address the needs of those who find themselves in difficult financial circumstances. Please consider volunteering your time to help make our programs a success.
Our purpose is to establish and sustain a community-wide effort to help meet the basic needs of residents of the Town of Burlington, thereby strengthening the community as a whole.
86% of donations collected go directly to support Burlington residents in urgent financial situations. People Helping People operates solely on donations.
