Gather Place slates gift drive for those in need


Gather Place launches a Family Gift Giving Drive for 2022, taking place throughout the month of December, on Saturdays and Sundays.

The gift donations drop off box will be available between noon and 3 p.m. at the Old A.M.E. Church, 188 S. Canal St. Yardley, and is facilitated by Gather Place. Wanted are unwrapped toys, games and/or grocery and/or food gift cards. All donations will be distributed to Bucks County children and families in need.

The old A.M.E Church in the Historic District of Yardley Borough was built in 1877 and is the headquarters of Gather Place a nonprofit organization. This historic landmark is now open with a renewed mission under the conservatorship of Shirley Lee Corsey and is being restored through donations and grants.

Gather Place goals also include providing meaningful community-based events and activities that tell the story about Yardley Borough’s rich history of its families, neighborhoods, and culture.
