In the beginning of September, the Doylestown Food Pantry, run by the Bucks County Housing Group, was running extremely low on food for the nearly 500 families it serves each month, and they issued a call of help to the community. In response, our youth in Club 456 and Element sprung in to action and collected over 300 pounds of food during September and October. A group of teens helped to deliver the collected items to the food pantry the week of Thanksgiving and spent time volunteering to organize and stock shelves. There was a lot to be done. Since the pantry's call for help just a few short months ago, they have received nearly 25,000 of food in just November alone!
