United Way Bucks has announced the next three rounds of funding from the COVID-19 Bucks County Recovery Fund are being distributed.
One of the biggest beneficiaries from the latest round is the Bucks County Opportunity Council, which will see $25,000 to help supply food pantries with necessities.
$2,000 each will then be distributed to twelve food pantries throughout the county. A full $1,000 will be spent on buying 12,000 eggs.
BCOC Executive Director Erin Lukoss thanked UWBucks and the fund for the grant.
“Each of the twelve pantries has been identified as a pantry with high volume, struggling to meet the demands COVID-19 has placed on their resources,” said Lukoss. “This grant will help to fill the shelves and get food quickly to the homes of families in need.”
Other non-profits receiving grants include:
- Quilts for Kids (first grant)
- No Longer Bound (first grant)
- Good Friends, Inc. (first grant)
- The Salvation Army (second grant)
- Family Service Association of Bucks County (third grant)
- Bucks County Children and Youth (third grant)
- YMCA of Bucks County (third grant)
United Way Bucks started the fund in March with help from Penn Community Bank to keep non-profits running during the pandemic. It has distributed more than $148,000 to 21 non-profits so far.
