                 Middletown Helps Its Own is a truly unique organization. We function as an umbrella organization which coordinates the efforts of many other organizations and hundreds of volunteers, from school children to senior citizens, on behalf of our neighbors who are in need
                Middletown Helps Its Own was organized in 1964 by a group of thirteen community and civic organizations as the result of a series of community meetings sponsored by the Courier newspaper regarding coordination of help to the Township’s needy families.
             

                MHIO’s purpose was to insure that every needy family in Middletown received assistance at Christmas time. Its aim was to eliminate the duplication of effort that typically occurs when many well meaning groups are all attempting to accomplish the same objectives without coordinating with each other.
                In our first years of operation, Middletown Helps Its Own distributed food baskets to less than 50 families. Four decades later, this number has increased to about 300 families at Christmas and a Thanksgiving basket program has been added which reaches about 250 families. Ours is the largest program of its kind in our area. The cost of these programs to our organization is over $30,000 each year. The value of the food, toys and clothing which are donated to us and added to what we buy brings the total value of our distributions to over $40,000.
                Businesses, community organizations, schools, scouts and ordinary citizens living in Middletown all pitch in to provide food, toys, clothing and cash donations to help make each holiday season brighter for our neighbors in need. Deliveries of the gift baskets are handled by volunteers from our member organizations.
