IN THE COMMUNITY

Our first outreach in our community is working with the New Britain Food Pantry in helping with food insecurity issues that exist right here in Bucks County.

DID YOU KNOW…

  • ACCORDING TO THE INTELLIGENCER, IN BUCKS COUNTY MORE THAN 57,000 PEOPLE ARE FOOD INSECURE, WITH 32% OF THEM CHILDREN.
  • MORE THAN HALF OF THOSE WHO ARE FOOD INSECURE MAKE TOO MUCH MONEY TO QUALIFY FOR ASSISTANCE AND 35% SKIP A MEAL EVERY DAY !!!
  • THERE WERE MORE THAN 70,000 VISITS TO BUCKS COUNTY FOOD PANTRIES IN 2017.

We at Silver Shield Financial are trying to do something about this…

Piggybacking off my son Jacob’s Eagle Scout Project with Troop 48-Doylestown addressing the hunger issue that exists right here in our community, we are working with the New Britain Food Pantry to provide canned goods and personal care items to their many patrons throughout the year. We also help with gift card collections, so the pantry has a spare fund when donations are low after the holidays and in the summer months.

We like to think this is just another way to offer “Security Behind the Shield…”
