United Way of Bucks County

The United Way of Bucks County’s HELP Center has been providing assistance to Bucks County residents affected by the recent storms and flooding by distributing donations of new home goods and living essentials to those in need. But those resources are running low.

If you would like to support their efforts, they are currently accepting donations of the following items: complete towel sets, complete sheet sets (twin, full and queen), undergarments (socks, undershirts and underpants), personal care products, shampoo, soap, deodorant and laundry detergent. All items must be new and in their original packaging. No gently used items can be accepted.

The HELP Center, 194 Commerce Circle in Bristol, takes donations on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The HELP Center – a Healthy Eating and Living Partnership – is a collaboration of three nonprofit agencies: Bucks County Opportunity Council, St. Mary Medical Center and United Way of Bucks County.

9/11 Heroes Run Information

The Travis Manion 9/11 Heroes Run will be held on Saturday, September 11th.  This 5K Run and 1-mile Fun Run is organized by the Lower Southampton Veterans Advisory Council in conjunction with the Travis Manion Foundation whose goal is to foster long-term appreciation for the sacrifices made by those men and women since September 11, 2001, who fought against terrorism both in foreign wars and on the home front.

The 5K will run through the Buckridge Farms neighborhood on the day of the race.  The streets affected by the closure include Mallard, Nancy, Sandpiper, Woodcock, Pheasant, Quail, Eastview, Westview, Waycross and Midway. Please remove all vehicles from your street the night before.  From approximately 8:30 AM until 10:30 AM on the day of the race, these streets will be closed to all vehicular traffic.  

We are asking residents to show your support for the runners and the ones they run for by flying your American Flags and patriotic decorations – and, if you can, watch the race and cheer on the runners!
