President of Blue Bell Country Club, Bud Hansen III, said the goal was to include residents and members in finding ways to help the community while the number of people needing assistance is growing daily.
The initiative began about a month ago, when organizers sent out preliminary information to members, contacted area organizations, and created a drop-off schedule.
The participating organizations include Manna on Main Street in Lansdale, Martha’s Choice Marketplace in Norristown, the Mattie N. Dixon Community Cupboard in Ambler, and Mitzvah Circle in Norristown.
The donation drives for the first two of these charities have already taken place, while the donation drives for the remaining two will take place on May 1 and May 8, respectively.
Gary Murray, a marketing consultant for Blue Bell Country Club, said the organization would “make a grand donation to each” charity in the form of matching “nonperishable items.”
