On behalf of all the families with whom we work, we would like to offer our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who provided support and volunteer time for Thanksgiving. Every bag of food, every minute spent volunteering, every turkey, meant that a family in need from your Bucks County community was able to receive a Thanksgiving meal.
BCHG offices are closed from 1pm November 26 until 9am December 1st. All Community Food Pantries are closed until December 1st.
As we each gather around our holiday tables, let us give thanks for all we have and remember those who struggle. Together we can do what we cannot do alone. Peace, and once again, thank you.
We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.
