We are in the planning stages for our 2018 Visions of Joy program.  Letters have been sent to area churches and organizations and we are compiling our lists of recipients who will receive three gifts from our “VOE Santas”!  Please contact us at our website or our phone at 484-264-7505 if you are aware of anyone who should be added to our list.

Boscov’s Department Store, who is our VOJ partner, has offered to place an angel gift tree in their store for our Visions of Joy gift recipients.  Be sure to check out the tree when you shop there and get an angel.  We are very thankful to all who shop for our “angels”!



VOE committee member, Darrel Mengel, is the creator of the Nazareth Park Pool Books.  He wants to let everyone know who purchased a book, that additional pages are available to complete your book.  Please contact VOE at 484-264-7505 or email us at to get your additional pages.  Thank you for supporting VOE!

Nazareth Area Middle School and Intermediate Students Hold VOE Walk A Thon


On Friday, May 19, 2017 a Walk a Thon was organized by the Nazareth Area Middle School Eagle Ambassadors and the Nazareth Intermediate School. Hundreds of students, parents and faculty participated in these events which were held outside. The Walk a Thon was a HUGE success!  The check that the VOE Ambassadors presented to our organization was over $8,000!  Thank you Nazareth Middle School VOE Ambassadors, Nazareth Intermediate School, parents, faculty and volunteers for supporting the families and individuals in your school district!  Kudos to all of you for a job well done!!

The VOE 2013 $20 Challenge raises over $15,000!

On behalf of the entire Visions of Eagles Foundation committee,

I would like to thank you for your gracious contribution

to our Annual Twenty Dollar Challenge. 

In today’s economy, it is extremely difficult to raise funds.

Last year we decided it would be easier to ask a little from a lot,

rather than a lot from a little.

This worked very effectively and our 2013 contributions totaled

just over $15,000 from 139 individuals, families and businesses! 

Our total care giving for 2013 was in excess of $30,000 to individuals

and families in the Nazareth Area School District. 

Since October 2008 we have provided over $127,000. 

As you continue to support VOE it is important that you understand that

for every dollar contributed, ninety-five cents is utilized to help others.

As we have no paid staff, only 5% is required for operating expenses.

We will always be very sensitive about being good custodians of

your kind support of our Foundation.

We are blessed to be a blessing!

2012 Visions of Joy Program

We had another successful Visions of Joy program this year!  We provided gifts to 29 families with 77 children and more than $2300 was spent to purchase their three gifts.  Boscov’s did another wonderful job this year by providing wrapping services and special sales for our program.  BJ Toys also donated stuffed animals and several other toy donations were received.  Thank you to everyone who helped make this Christmas special for these families!

The VOE $20 Challenge Raises Over $6,000!

In early November, our Committee mailed these  postcards to residents of the Nazareth School District, friends, acquaintances, classmates  and business owners challenging them to make a $20 (or more) donation to VOE.  Our requests for help were overwhelming in 2012 and we expect this to continue in 2013.   We are thrilled to tell you that the $20 Challenge raised over $6,000.  The Visions of Eagles Committee has decided that this challenge will be one of our annual fundraisers. A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who donated to this challenge.  Your donation will assist us to continue to help those in need in YOUR community.
