Due to COVID-19, Philabundance is adapting its efforts to ensure individuals and families
have access to the food they need while preventing the spread of the virus.
From finding food to learning how to help, use our resources to take action today.
Veterans who’ve sacrificed so much deserve better than the worry of where their next meal will come from.

“It’s truly a blessing,” Henry says of the Philabundance member agency, which operates through Bristol Borough Community Action Group, Inc. “We can’t get out because of my condition…it’s a big help.”

 

While serving our country in Iraq, Henry was wounded twice in the line of duty and received a Purple Heart. As a result of his injuries, Henry now has paralysis on his right side and uses a wheelchair. With limited mobility, a small fixed income and two teenagers — Tiffany and Yasir — he was struggling to afford his monthly expenses.

 

Fortunately, Henry was connected with help and hope when he needed them most. When Pastor Jeff, executive director of Bristol Borough Community Action Group, first met Henry, he was wearing multiple coats to keep warm in his cold, dark home — he didn’t have enough money to pay his electricity bill at the time.

 

“It’s truly a blessing,” Henry says. “Philabundance is a beautiful organization — I’m saying this from the bottom of my heart — they look out for people in need.”

 

Since that initial meeting, Pastor Jeff has connected Henry with the resources he needed — including groceries from the Bristol Borough Community Action Group food pantry, which Pastor Jeff delivers personally each week.

 

Henry says having access to nutritious food delivered right to his door is such a relief. Veterans who’ve sacrificed so much deserve better than the worry of where their next meal will come from.

 

Henry is full of gratitude for people like you, whose partnership helps fill his table with healthy meals. Things are looking up for him, and your generosity plays a major role in making his future bright.

 

“It’s truly a blessing,” Henry says. “Philabundance is a beautiful organization — I’m saying this from the bottom of my heart — they look out for people in need.”
