The 4UDREW Foundation has increased its presence and support in the Bucks County/ Greater Philadelphia area. Our last year’s car show and festival allowed our foundation to add the Buck County Housing Group to our list of charities to support their food pantries. The BCHG instituted the 4UDREW Internship program where a student is selected to receive a stipend for their work during the summer. This type of “pay it forward” charity falls in line with our mission of supporting hunger prevention and educational scholarships.
