Given the area’s numerous volunteer needs, why contribute time to East Norriton-based Hogs and Honeys? Tom Callahan, the organization’s director of volunteers, doesn’t miss a beat with his answer.
“Because everything we do goes directly to the children of this community,” Callahan says. “This is an organization that gives back to the community directly … in a way that lets you see the difference. Immediately. There aren’t any middlemen. And everything we do goes 100 percent to the children of the community, and that’s very gratifying,” writes M. English in The Times Herald.
Hogs and Honeys’ signature events include its annual Spring Fling — scheduled for March 10 — at the Valley Forge Convention Center and its Christmas in July Toy Run, a benefit for the boys and girls at Martin Luther-Silver Springs School in Plymouth Meeting and Variety — the Children’s Charity of the Delaware Valley.
Currently, some 68 men and women are Hogs and Honeys members. Callahan notes they get “a very generous assist” for Spring Fling from the Conshohocken, Norriton Circle and Levittown-Bristol Kiwanis Clubs. The Montgomery County Chapter of the Centurions, a law enforcement-rooted motorcycle group, teams up with Hogs and Honeys for its Christmas in July Toy Run.
