Morrisville Borough Employees, Habitat Bucks to Participate in President’s Day of Service at Morrisville Y

Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County (Habitat Bucks) is matching a community need with the perfect volunteers to lend a hand. Morrisville Borough employees will be providing an indoor revitalization of the YMCA of Bucks County’s Morrisville Youth Education Center on President’s Day, February 18. This facility serves 137 children and their families with PreK and before and after school programs and is located at 200 N. Pennsylvania Avenue, Morrisville, PA 19067.

“We feel very appreciative of our partnership with Habitat Bucks,” commented Zane Moore, president/CEO of YMCA of Bucks County. “We are especially grateful to the volunteers who will be sprucing up our indoor play areas. This time of year, when kids cannot be outside, having a clean, bright area for them to burn energy after school is very important to their well-being.”

“We love it when we can make community connections. Bringing together employees from Morrisville, where we are building four new Habitat homes, and the service project at the Y was a perfect fit,” said Florence Kawoczka, Habitat Bucks’ executive director.

“Morrisville Borough employees are thrilled to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County for a day of service,” Manager Scott Mitchell said. “This ‘all hands on deck’ employee event is the first of its kind for Morrisville Borough and we are pleased to be partnered with Habitat Bucks to execute our community service project.”

Under the supervision of Habitat’s construction team, dozens of volunteers will be wielding paint, brushes, brooms, and cleaning buckets to refresh the Y’s play spaces for the children. Neighbors helping neighbors is at the core of Habitat’s mission.
