At Bucks Happening, we love the holiday season. We love the anticipation, the shopping, every towns' celebration and decor, even the festive coffee drinks (let's be serious, especially the coffee drinks). With all of the hustle and bustle, it is important to remember those brave people who work every day to ensure that we all have the freedom to enjoy a light show, a peppermint martini, and holiday parties with our friends and families.

bucks county soldier care package drive

We are talking about the soldiers. So many of them will spend this holiday season overseas while the rest of us enjoy the comfort of our homes and the love of our family and friends. To show our appreciation, Bucks Happening is organizing a Care Package Drive & Fundraiser event. Simply drop off approved items (below) at one of our partner drop off locations (also below). Bucks Happening will take care of the rest.

We will be donating all of the goods to the soldiers via Soldiers' Angels. Soldiers' Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing aid and comfort to the men and women of the United States Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and their families. Founded in 2003 by the mother of two American soldiers, its hundreds of thousands of Angel volunteers assist veterans, wounded and deployed personnel and their families in a variety of unique and effective ways. Be sure to follow them on Facebook.

If you would like your business to be included as a drop off location, please email us (info at bucks happening [dot] com).

ALSO BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE FIND RAISER EVENT WE WILL BE DOING DECEMBER 15th WITH ISAAC NEWTONS AND RIVERHORSE!

In addition to the items below, Soldiers' Angels is always in need of postage in order to get these items to the soldiers
