Please share this post!!! Tomorrow is #GivingTuesdayNow—5/5/20, a day of giving created in response to COVID-19. Please join this effort by making a gift to Bristol Township Senior Center that will directly support the staffing and tools needed to deliver lifesaving meals services throughout the COVID-19 emergency. We included videos and photos so you can see the operation we completed today from receiving food and supplies to sending them out for delivery. We also have a Gofundme page setup as well. A giant Thank you Bristol Township Emergency Management and Bucks County Area Agency on Aging for sending many Township staff and county volunteers to help us get the meals out.
