The Grundy Foundation announced today that William Penn Bank gave $1,000 in support of the foundation’s campaign “COVID-19: Feeding Bristol Borough.”

The donation builds on the recent initiative begun by The Grundy Foundation, whereby local residents facing food insecurities due to COVID-19 are fed by a partnership with Bristol restaurants.

Participating restaurants include: Annabella’s Italian, Cesare’s Ristorante, King George II Inn, Itri Wood Fired and Mill Street Cantina.

Gene Williams, executive director of The Grundy Foundation, announced in May the campaign to feed Bristol Borough’s elderly, homeless and families struggling with food insecurity due to the pandemic. He asked local community members to match the foundation’s $10,000 donation.

To date, including the William Penn Bank donation, just over $7,500 has been raised by the community. Local restaurants provided meals to seniors, the homeless and at-risk families during June and July; matching donations will provide meals into August.
