During the 18th Annual Partnership in Youth Services Award Luncheon Ceremony, Foundations Community Partnership (FCP) recognized 12 Bucks County non-profit community programs making a difference in the lives of local children and their families by presenting them each with a $3,000 grant. The event was held last month at the Doylestown County Club.
Foundations Executive Director Ron Bernstein said, “We are so impressed by these organizations’ dedication and are moved by their passion and commitment. We thank them for everything they do for our community.” Helping Ron present this year’s checks, along with a plaque, was Bucks County Commissioner Diane Ellis-Marseglia and Dr. Richard Coe, a member of Foundations Board of Directors.
Jenny Salisbury accepted the first award on behalf of Bucks County Community College’s Kids on Campus, a large-scale summer camp on the college’s Newtown campus. The grant will help Kids on Campus offer scholarships to at-risk youth who could not attend this camp without financial assistance.
“We are particularly excited to provide scholarships to children focused in the Lower Bucks area and at our Bristol campus,” said Jenny.
