A warm welcome awaited Adoptions From The Heart last week at Bucks County Community College in Bristol, PA on Friday, September 27, 2013 as a part of United Way of Bucks County’s “Volunteer Bucks Day of Service”.
Teams of enthusiastic volunteers dispersed throughout Bucks County on Friday to help others in the community. Bucks County Community College students, faculty, staff and alumni volunteered at over a dozen service sites in BCCC’s first annual Volunteer Bucks Day of Service, hosted with the help of United Way Bucks County. Adoptions From The Heart was grateful to have been a part of the event.
With the help registered volunteers, some students passing by, and the wonderful BCCC staff, almost 1,500 purple paper hearts were cut, bundled, and ready to go for AFTH’s annual fundraiser and awareness campaign, The Paper Heart Project. Adoptions From the Heart hosts Paper Heart Project throughout November, in honor of National Adoption Month.
Throughout the month of November participants and sponsors collect donations of $1 in exchange for a purple paper heart which is then displayed during the Month of November to spread adoption awareness. All proceeds raised from the project benefit AFTH’s Birthmother Fund. In addition to raising money for a worthy cause, The Paper Heart Project is a simple fundraiser to bring the community together in supporting and spreading adoption awareness.
