Operation Helping Hand

Web logo 2017Operation Helping Hand (OHH) is a one-day county-wide food drive. Originated by employees of US Steel in Levittown in 1966 and joined by UW Bucks in 1975, OHH is the longest continuously operating food drive in Bucks County.

In 2017 OHH gathered 47,309 pounds of nonperishable food, partnering with 246 schools, local businesses, and other collection sites for the benefit of 31 local food pantries. Our goal this year: to collect 67,000 lbs of nutritious food.

We have a lot to celebrate in 2018.

Inspire Federal Credit Union  is returning as the lead sponsor for this project and Bucks County Opportunity Council’s Adopt A Pantry is partnering with us once again.
