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.
