Every year, the Bucks County Intermediate Unit (Bucks IU) recognizes individuals who have made an extraordinary contribution of support and assistance to Bucks IU programs. The celebrated individuals and organizations represent a wide variety of local businesses, nonprofits, government agencies, retirees and school district personnel. Bucks IU is celebrating 64 recipients of this year’s Caring Community Award.
Nominations for the award are submitted by Bucks IU staff and are based on the work they’ve done with nominees or their organization. The person or services being recognized are those that made a significant impact by assisting Bucks IU staff in classrooms (in-person and virtually) and programs, or by offering support to students and families.
Due to COVID-19 safety protocols, the annual event to celebrate recipients at the Bucks IU administrative offices was not able to occur; however, they didn’t let the virus dampen the honors. Every winner was sent a letter notifying them of their award, and awards were delivered by the IU employee who nominated them or sent via mail.
