CHECK OUT THE NEW BUCKSBLOGSPOT. HELP FOR BUCKS COUNTY BUSINESSES AND ECONOMIC RECOVERY – BUCKSBLOGSPOT

Spotlight: The Ivins Outreach Center assists community during pandemic

The Ivins Outreach Center strives to improve the quality of life for residents living in Morrisville and our neighboring communities.

In these unprecedented times, we adapted to the needs of those impacted by the coronavirus pandemic since March 2020.

The Ivins Outreach Center is taking action to feed hungry children, families, disabled adults, and seniors during this difficult time.

The Ivins Outreach Center was awarded several grants through the Bucks County COVID-19 Recovery Fund.

The Fund was established by United Way of Bucks County with additional relief from Penn Community Bank.

In addition to serving 345 individuals with weekly hot meal deliveries and groceries, we assembled boxes of food for 60 low-income families residing in Lower Bucks County. We delivered 1,600 hot meals during the months of November and December 2020.

With the help of 16 individuals and businesses who adopted our children for the holidays as well as Toys for Tots, we were able to provide holiday help to 228 families with 615 children.

We assisted five other organizations who provided holiday toys and gifts to 370 children.

These are only a few examples of the extraordinary efforts made this past year to help our community.

We are especially grateful for the incredible efforts displayed by our network of volunteers.

We are joined by a team of 215 “Angels in Action” volunteers and we are thankful for the support provided by local groups and generous contributors.

The character of Lower Bucks County is one of determination and resilience.

By working together and supporting one another, we are going to get through this pandemic.

To all those leading the way, thank you!
