United Way of Bucks County Helping Fight Hunger After COVID-19
Due to COVID-19, so many families have been hurt in many different ways. For many families, one of the toughest tasks has been being able to have food on the table every day. According to BucksLocalNews.com, United Way of Bucks County is having their hunger-fighting event that will help families that are having a hard time to bring food to the table because of the coronavirus.
We learned that United Way of Bucks County has held the Bucks Knocks Out Hunger even before. Now, they are trying to get the word out that on Saturday, June 20th there will be donations held at multiple locations. Since many people have been quarantined to avoid contracting the coronavirus, Bucks Knocks Out Hunger has created contact-free donations as well as drop-off sites for food donations at 4 different locations.
If are wondering how to donate without having any contact, BucksLocalNews.com stated that Bucks Knocks Out Hunger requests that everyone donating must place the non-perishable food in the trunk of their car. It will be grabbed from there.
Not only that but Bucks Local News mentioned that BKO Hunger also allows people to donate food via delivery services.
BucksLocalNews.com mentioned that the donation locations are YMCA of Bucks County in Doylestown, Bucks County Community College in Newtown, St Luke’s University Health Network and Hospital in Quakertown, and the Neshaminy Mall in Bensalem.
The United Way's Director for Financial Stability and Health told BucksLocalNews.com that this year is more important than ever to collect a lot of food because so many have lost their jobs and have been put in a tough position.
The non-perishable foods will be collected on Saturday, June 20th from 9 am to 12 pm.
