Local Giving You Can Feel Good About

Posted on November 21st, 2017

Donating to a charity should be an informed decision, not a guess. Giving Tuesday marks the advent of the season of giving in America.  Most of us will be inundated with appeals from charities for donations. I can hear the groans now – my mailbox is full! Yet most of us truly want to be philanthropic: we want to leave our mark and have a positive impact on the world around us. We want to make a difference. So, how do you decide which charities to support? And how can you be sure your gift will be put to good use? These

Upcycling- by guest blogger-Dianna Darnley

Posted on March 28th, 2017

What is upcycling besides a phrase that started in the 90’s? Is it taking an item that is no longer needed or wanted and giving it a new life for a higher value, or is it just turning it into something useful and creative? It’s both!

Brian and Vicki

Posted on October 11th, 2016

Safety. If you ask most families what they want in a home, at the very least, that’s what they want. Habitat Bucks’ 100th Home represents that and so much more to Brian and Vicki, and their children. Their previous home was less than 10 feet away from a dangerous road—so dangerous that a vehicle ended up in their neighbor’s living room one recent winter. There was no outdoor space to play or ride bikes. Brian and Vicki, along with our volunteers, built their brand-new home in Levittown dreaming about safety…and room to grow…and play….and LIVE. Their dream was realized in June 2015.

Prevailing, they became our first official Penn Villa homeowner family when they purchased their four-bedroom townhome, moving from their two-bedroom apartment in Perkasie.
