“As a local organization, TMA Bucks understands how important it is to give back to the community that we serve,” said TMA Bucks executive director Bill Rickett in making the announcement. “The holiday season represents a time for families to gather together and share a meal. During the holidays and all year round, organizations like the Family Service Association and the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter ensure that our neighbors, who need assistance, get the chance to share that special time.”
Items such as canned fruits and vegetables, pasta and rice, healthy single serving snacks, 100 % fruit juice boxes and bottled water are in high demand for the Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter.
“We are thrilled TMA Bucks has offered to partner with Family Service Association to help the most vulnerable people in our community,” said Family Service Association chief executive officer Audrey Tucker. “The Bucks County Emergency Homeless Shelter serves three meals a day to 70-80 residents, seven days a week, 365 days a year, so obviously a full food pantry is a must to meet such a basic need. The scope of this drive gives our community an easy way to join in the effort of helping our county’s homeless.”
