They give, and they give, and they give some more.

This time, the shoe was on the other foot when Crusaders For A Cause was the recipient of a $200 donation.

The group visited the Whitehall Manor, where they sang Christmas carols and had member Ryan Shupp play the part of Santa.

For their efforts, the Palmerton-based charitable organization was the recipient of the donation, courtesy of the band Shakey Ground.

Christina Obrecht, president of the organization, said it may put that donation toward its annual spring carnival May 27-29.

"Any help is a big help," Obrecht said.

Since its inception, Crusaders For A Cause has made several donations to other local organizations.

In November, the organization made a $1,000 donation to the Abramson Cancer Center to assist with research to find a cure for non-Hodgkins lymphoma.

One month earlier, the group donated an Automated External Defibrillator to the Palmerton Police Department after it raised $1,400 through a coin pitch to purchase the device.

At around that same time, the group presented two fire hose nozzles to the Parryville Volunteer Fire Department. Each nozzle sells for $280.

The organization was incorporated in the state of Pennsylvania last May under the Non-Profit Corporation Law of 1988 as amended, to help raise money for various charities.

Those charities include Relay For Life/American Cancer Society, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, March of Dimes, and many other community causes or projects.
