The BHCU Kids Foundation began with a simple mission of strengthening the Delaware County community by seeking to provide programs and support for at-risk youth, with the full knowledge and understanding that they are the future.
Opportunities abound to assist today’s youth with educational endeavors, employment, physical fitness programs, etc., all of which help to create capable, responsible and healthy young adults. Good goals!
However, in Delaware County today exists an even greater need for many children. Last year the DELCO community had over 1,400 reports of child abuse which sadly resulted in 2 actual fatalities and 4 near fatalities. In addition, 14% of Delco children live in poverty and over 18,000 children go hungry.
To combat these crises and provide HOPE for our children, the BHCU Kids Foundation partnered with The Community’s Foundation (“TCF”) to endow the Hope for Children Fund which will provide direct services to the most vulnerable among us, abused and neglected children in Delaware County.
To raise money for such a worthy cause, the BHCU Kids Foundation held their inaugural Golf Classic on October 14th at Radnor Valley County Club. Led by Platinum Sponsor BHCU, a credit union in Delaware County, PA, the local community was well represented. The BHCU Kids Foundation First Annual Golf Classic welcomed 84 golfers with tremendous support from local businesses and sponsors, making the event a smashing success.
With the staggering abuse instances against children reported in 2018 in Delaware County, the BHCU Kids Foundation was thrilled to be able to raise $14,557.29 for the BHCU Kids Foundation Hope for Children Fund. The BHCU Kids Foundation along with their friends and partners at The Community’s Foundation – TCF are proud to show their continued support and dedication to instill and provide HOPE for Delaware County youth.
