Newtown Quaker Kids raise $2,500 for Habitat Bucks at Simple Supper


The Newtown Quaker Meeting children and teenagers recently hosted a Simple Supper to raise funds for their selected charity at the Quaker Meetinghouse and raised $2,500 for Bucks County Habitat for Humanity.

Newtown Quaker Meeting will donate the proceeds to Habitat when members of the Meeting volunteer to help contract another Habitat house in Bucks County.

Previous recipients of the funds raised by the Newtown Quaker young people have been: Syrian refugee relief via the Shelterbox; U.S. hurricane relief via the All Hands Volunteers; and Valley Youth House’s Synergy Project for homeless youth in Bucks County and Allentown.

They also have been: Haiti Relief; The School for Leadership, Afghanistan (SOLA), the first boarding school for girls in Afghanistan; Greater Philadelphia Diaper Bank; Mercer Street Friends Center in Trenton; Penndel Food Pantry; Save Darfur; and Heifer International.
