Bucks County Dragon Boat Association (BCDBA) held their inaugural Dragon Boat Festival on 9/19/15 with a theme of Paddling out Hunger in Our Community. The event was sponsored by St. Mary Medical Center. BCHG was the charity beneficiary with over 3000 lbs. of food collected at the event to support BCHG’s food pantries as well as monetary donations!
State funding has been cut off for Pennsylvania food pantries until the budget impasse in Harrisburg is resolved. BCHG’s busiest food pantry located in Penndel relies heavily on this funding to purchase food for our neighbors in need. This lack of funding makes it hard to keep the pantry shelves stocked and this is the result.
Please consider a special donation of money or food to help us continue to serve those who need it most in our community.
Our most critical needs food needs are rice, beans, pasta, soups, canned meat, canned fruit, cereal, pasta sauce with meat as well as peanut butter and jelly.
Donations can be delivered to 349 Durham Road, Langhorne on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings from 9:30 am until 12:00 pm.

These backpacks allow these children to begin the school year on equal footing with their classmates. Thank you Bucks County Association or Realtors!
