Veteran Support

We love and support our troops! See how you can donate to veterans in need!

  • Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Wall is coming to Penndel Recreation Field from July 17 through July 19, 2017.  The BCCF is allocating up to $10,000 towards Veteran support during that time!

The Bucks County Community Foundation helped local homeless Veterans by supplying food, clothing and tents.
