Detective Christopher Jones Foundation provides emergency relief

The Detective Christopher Jones Foundation drew from their emergency relief fund and delivered a $1,500 check to the Gonzalez family of Bensalem on Thursday, April 16th.

The Gonzalez family, two adults and four children, lost their home on Winding Brook Road in Bensalem early on Wednesday morning, April 15th. After a friend of the family reached out to the Detective Christopher Jones Foundation and after the board of directors approved the request, the relief check was delivered within 24 hours.

DCJF would like to thank their volunteers and supporters for making this donation possible, and also thank you for your continued support.
