Gift Bags for Seniors
Introduce some cheer to the lives of our Bucks County senior citizens by donating gift bags!

When BCOC delivers monthly food boxes to income-eligible seniors, we love to provide an additional care package to go along with the dry and canned goods.

Fill your bags with some of the fun and useful items listed on the flyer, and help bring joy to the seniors in your community. 

Volunteers needed!
Through the Rapid Re-Housing program, our staff has found a home for a homeless adult in the Central Bucks area. The adult has no home furnishings; but we've secured a donation of a bed, dresser, couch, and table for him. We are seeking two or three heavy lifters with a truck or van to move the furniture. This can be done anytime between Wednesday 2/26 and this weekend. If you can help, please reach out to Eileen Albillar at . The location of the donation to the new apartment is a less than 10-minute drive, so multiple trips in a short time-frame are possible.

Returns are completed based on available volunteers. (No Appointments are taken by phone). Y ou can visit any site in Bucks County- click for FLYER for locations, days and times:
