My cat named Shalo has missing since last night. She is orange Tabby top and white underneath. Please If you see her call 215 788-788 7399. cell 215 837 3846. If anyone has her please bring her home.
I wish to bring to everyone'is attention about something in this small town in Bristol Borough. There is a man who is living in the free Parking Lot in a RV who has been there for little over a month. He works at a restaurant on Mill St. 6 days a week trying to make ends meet. He is being harassed by a man James Dillon using the local Police and Code Enforcement to try to get him to move any way he can. They have been harassing him even though the RV is registered and insured. There are several other homeless people living in there cars in this Parking Lot and yet they have been living there for over a year now with no trouble. The chief of police has approached this man and offered help from the Bucks County Opportunity Council and was promised that they would help purchase a generator and AC unit to help him relocate to another area. After the man spoke to them and they agreed to help within days thy then said they would do nothing to help under the influence of James Dillon. There is more then 5 homeless people living in the Parking Lot without help and more living in the woods behind Dow Chemical Corporation who need help as well. What did they spend the money on the won ? They should have helped some of these homeless if not all of them. That man i speak of is me I don't use drugs and I don't abuse alcohol. I help keep this Park clean and own a retired Police dog who is very friendly. James Dillon refuses to return my calls to answer why the harassment. Please Help. hanks for reading and God Bless..
I've left messages trying to volunteer at the Wood St. location, is there any need? I'd like to do something to help the Bristol Borough community.
Hello, what are your hours and do you have requirements for food assistance?
If anyone can can donate bags we'd greatly appreciate it. Also in need of the plastic bags that come in a roll used for produce! :-)
Ty
Much success.....
