Welcome to Give Back Lehigh Valley! Your one stop shop to make a different right here in the Lehigh Valley Community! Due to Covid-19, Give Back LV did not hold our annual softball and cornhole tournament. Instead, we hosted our first ever Give Back Virtual Bingo! and Covid-19 mask drive! Together, raising $12,000 for our community!
Here at Give Back, we are always #SupportingLocal Lehigh Valley businesses and organizations, and so these event were no different! All bingo prizes were from businesses in our community so we could help drive traffic to them during Covid. Small Lehigh Valley businesses are what make our annual Give Back event a reality, so it’s our turn to help them! Proceeds from Give Back Bingo went back into in the Lehigh Valley community in support of local Covid relief efforts.
Between 2020 and 2021, we have raised over $15,000 for our community, thanks to amazing people like you! Our current efforts have not switched to the holiday season with our annual Holiday Hope Chest Drive. Visit our Holiday Hope Chest page for more informaiton.
What is Give Back Lehigh Valley?
Give Back Lehigh Valley was created by husband and wife team Joe and Aurora Brunovsky. The organization was formed in 2013 as an idea to give our friends and family a chance to give back to their local community and make a small difference in someone else’s life. We don’t support just one cause but changes the benefiting non-profit every year. We support giving, volunteering and helping those in need. This idea has blossomed to organization that we have today raising over $100,000 right here in our very back yard.
The GBLV organization has been recognized by many in our local community including the politicians, business owners, community leaders and we even received recognition by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf for our fight against opioid addiction in 2019. Joe and Aurora believe that it’s everyone’s duty to give a little to those in need and this is their way to Give Back. This small idea has blossomed into something much bigger! We have many different events throughout the year with our two capstone events being the Give Back LV Softball and Cornhole Tournament and The Holiday Hope Chest Campaign!
The tournament has turned into a $20,000+ day event and has donated over $80,000 to organizations throughout our community. On a yearly basis we have around 200 players plus an additional 100+ friends and family in attendance along with food, drinks, games and raffle prizes.
The Holiday Hope Chest campaign is something Give Back LV has also been involved with since 2013. It’s the building and collecting of shoe boxes filled with necessities and toys/trinkets for children in our community who may not get many holiday gifts. Since 2013, Give Back LV has donated almost 800 Hope Chests to brighten the holiday of a child here in the Lehigh Valley!
