In their latest newsletter, the Levittown Community Council reminds residents of several upcoming holiday events taking place in town.

The Levittown Tree Lighting Ceremony, sponsored by the Levittown Chamber of Commerce, will be held on Monday, Dec. 3 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 pm at the Memorial Park, in front of the Levittown Library. Toys for Tots will be collecting, so the council said an unwrapped gift for an unfortunate child would be appreciated.

Looking for a way to give back this holiday season? The council said they are in need of donations for the Levittown School District's Holiday Adopt-a-Family program, which provides gifts, clothes and items for families in need.

The council said they had planned to adopt two families, but the district told them because so much is needed by this family, they have asked that the council take just one child and try to purchase all of the items on the list they've provided.
