Newtown Quaker youth raise $$$ for homeless kids

The Newtown Quaker Meeting children and teenagers hosted a Simple Supper last month at the Newtown Meetinghouse to raise funds for Valley Youth House’s Synergy Project, which helps Bucks County and Allentown area runaway and homeless youths. They served soup, bread and butter, drinks, and dessert to over 135 people. In lieu of tickets, attendees were asked to make donations. When the evening was over, the kids had collected a hefty $1,623.85 in donations for the charity.
