Healing with The Blues & Warm Hugs from BUCK! 


You asked and we listened. On Thursday, June 10, we held our second virtual happy hour, Healing with The Blues. We tested the knowledge of all our Blues aficionados, who really came to play. The winner cleaned up with a brand-new Roomba! We also had a raffle for everyone who donated more than $10 to BUCK, and the winner received two complimentary tickets to Longwood Gardens.  One of our Pay A BUCK Forward grant recipients from 2018, Jocelyn Flay, helped us connect with our true source while explaining the medicinal benefits of reiki. Paired with the musical stylings of Delaware’s own Venom Blues, our participants started the “healing process” — all from the comfort of their home. Thank you to everyone that attended, donated and congrats to our trivia and raffle winners! 


More great news! BUCK recently received a $3,000 grant from the Ethel Sergeant Clark Smith Memorial Fund administered by Wells Fargo for our Warm Hugs from BUCK program. “We are honored to receive this grant,” said Foundation President, Lori Nonnemaker. “We started our Warm Hugs from BUCK program about five years ago to provide much-needed goods and supplies to cancer patients in the Philadelphia area. We have ‘hugged’ over 700 patients since 2016. With this generous grant, we will be providing COVID-19 care packages to the local cancer community in Delaware County. We expect to deliver these ‘hugs’ over the summer so our cancer patients can remain safe as we head into the fall season.”  

 

Deliveries of goods are made by the Foundation volunteers. Those interested in joining the Foundation’s efforts are encouraged to email info@buckcancerfoundation.org or visit the Foundation’s website at www.buckcancerfoundation.org to learn more about other ways to contribute to the Foundation’s mission.
