This week, WBCB 1490 AM shared Speak Your Piece programming with the Bucks County Heroes Scholarship Fund directly from Team Toyota on Route 1, Middletown Township. Tom Mellon, of Team Toyota, presented a check of more than $12,000 – the result of a fund-raising bike ride to Atlantic City.
Mellon, a retired Philadelphia police officer, has been in on the ground floor of the Bucks County Heroes Scholarship Fund, helping publicize and raising money for the educational fund. The organization continues to grow through the years with more active members and donors.
The Bucks County Heroes Scholarship Fund has been providing post-secondary education scholarships for the children of police officers, firefighters and other first responders who lost their lives on duty since 1990. The Fund is supported by the Bucks County Commissioners, law enforcement associations, private business, and individuals.
