Cradles To Crayons: Helping School Children In Need Get the Essentials


radles to Crayons, a nonprofit organization that equips children from birth through age 12 living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive, has commenced its Ready for School initiative, a program aiming to ensure that children enter the school year confident and excited to learn. Cradles to Crayons (C2C) is preparing children for the new school year. Since 2006, C2C’s Ready for School program has worked to help level the playing field for all children by providing essential items needed to start school on the right foot. This year’s program, which runs through September 30th, aims to serve 30,000 children and prepare them from head to toe. The program will distribute backpacks filled with new, age-appropriate school supplies as well as customized KidPacks complete with clothing, shoes, and more. There are currently more than 300,000 children in need in Philadelphia. Philadelphia has the highest rate of deep poverty (12.3%) in the nation. Entering the school year without the supplies needed to succeed can be a significant developmental setback. Basic essentials like backpacks, school supplies, shoes, and clothing are critical tools that help developing children turn curiosity and creativity into knowledge and success. These resources also alleviate stress from struggling parents and allow them to direct money to food, rent, and other necessities.

“One of the families we serve at Parkside Association of Philadelphia has a young girl entering kindergarten and a boy entering 1st grade. To see their faces light up from the nice, new shining backpack made all the difference,” said Lucinda Hudson, Parkside Association of Philadelphia. “The family lives below the poverty line and do not have very much in terms of new things; and there are two other siblings younger than they are. It was such a feeling of joy to see those two kids be excited about going to school with their new backpacks and all the new stuff inside.”

Basic essentials like backpacks and school supplies are critical for developing children “We all remember how good it felt, and the excitement of having a brand new backpack filled with fresh school supplies.” said Michal Smith, Executive Director of Cradles to Crayons Philadelphia. “Children living in poverty already start school two or more grades behind their more advantaged peers, and if a child is uncomfortable about their appearance or lack of supplies, they are unable to focus on schoolwork. We want to make sure these students are well prepared and confident so they can excel in and out of the classroom. For these children, a backpack isn’t just a backpack, it is a launching pad.”

Cradles to Crayons launched in 2002 and has operations in Boston, Philadelphia, and Chicago. The nonprofit provides children from birth through age 12 living in homeless or low-income situations with the essential items they need to thrive—at home, at school, and at play. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have with communities that need. Cradles to Crayons mobilizes communities of plenty on behalf of communities of need, recycling and reusing high-quality children’s goods and engaging thousands of youth and adults in tangible service activities each year that benefit local children.

Local Organization That Helps the Homeless Needs Donations & Volunteers


dvocates for Homeless & Those in Need (AHTN) has been helping the homeless and those in need in Lower Bucks County since 2009. AHTN was recently informed that they have lost a major funder this fiscal year. That huge gap in funding is troublesome as they might not be able to fund all of their missions. AHTN transports the homeless to free shared meals at 35 different houses of worship in Lower Bucks County. AHTN Volunteers use the nonprofit’s two buses to pick up the homeless at a few pick-up points and bring them to these houses of worship to enjoy a meal with others. The houses of worship open their doors to their congregation, the community and our homeless friends. The homeless often struggle with where they are going to get their next meal, which might lead to feeling isolated. If the homeless can get to one of the pick-up spots, then they can enjoy a hot meal almost every day of the year. These meals provide socialization and healthy food. AHTN can also connect the homeless with bikes if they need one to get to these pick-up spots. This partnership between AHTN and these houses of worship shows a strong support for keeping the homeless fed and healthy. AHTN is trying to find additional funding for this “Wheels to Meals” mission. Their buses require inspections twice a year, a lot of maintenance, insurance and lots of fuel. This past fiscal year, AHTN transported over 5,000 guests and drove their buses over 14,000 miles to participate in these free shared meals.

Page 6 of 2017, #14

AHTN is well known for their Code Blue mission that operates from December 1-March 31 every year. There are other AHTN missions that run all year long, like Rejuvenation Station, which offers showers, haircut & shave, lunch and clothing to our homeless friends. AHTN’s Those in Need (TIN)

In search of the funds to connect homeless people with hot meals mission provides year-long funding for emergency shelter; rental assistance; move-in costs; car repairs & gas cards; prescriptions and transportation to mental health & doctors’ appointments, food pantries, thrift stores and the laundromat. AHTN is creating additional fundraising events and writing additional grants. If you know of foundations, trusts and companies who support hunger relief, shelter and families in crisis, please e-mail Karen Mineo at Here is how you can help. Donate to their #FreeWheels2FreeMeals online campaign. Please visit and click on the green DONATE NOW button or mail a check to: AHTN, PO Box 184, Fairless Hills, PA 19030. ■

Leader Lottery Winner: Gina Jones Gina Jones, of Wyoming Avenue in Langhorne, was our Leader Lottery winner for the July issue of The Lower Bucks Leader.

She found a matching number in the ad for “Up to $1100 for Junk Cars and trucks.” She filled out her lottery ticket on the Leader’s website and it was drawn at random from a small pool of finalists.

Her favorite pastime is working in her flower gardens. Leader Lottery winners receive $100 for themselves; they also get to choose a charity, community cause or organization that has special meaning for them, for which The Lower Bucks Leader provides a free promotional ad or fundraising message. Gina Jones chose the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission Thrift

Store, on Bellevue Avenue in Penndel. “I frequent all the local non-profit thrift stores in the area,” she said. “The thing about Sunday Breakfast is everything stays right here in the area. I donate and purchase at their store. Their ministry serves 500 meals daily, 7 days a week. They provide safe housing to thousands of men, women and children. Right here in the Lower Bucks area they have a representative that goes out to the “tent cities” to help those in need get some of the resources they need.” ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Leader Lottery is a feature of every issue, in which readers can win money for themselves and free publicity for their favorite charity or community cause.

Tips from Leader Readers A few September tips/reminders for my fellow gardeners: (1) This is a good time to plant onions, turnips and radishes. (2) Begin laying down a thick layer of compost, manure or shredded leaves that can be worked into the soil. It will decay into rich nutrients over the winter. (3) Hardy bulbs that look great in spring gardens can be easily planted in fall, ensuring they are ready to bloom at the earliest opportunity after winter. Crocuses, tulips, daffodils and hyacinths all take well to September planting. —Bob Hodash / Lower Makefield Twp. One of your Leader Readers wrote in with some good tips for using silicone spray around the house. I am also a big fan of the stuff. Here are a couple more ways that I use silicone spray with great results: (1) I spray some inside the chute of my lawnmower and snowblower. It really helps everything fly out of there, and the chute stays cleaner. (2) When I clean my rain gutters at this time of year, I give the satellite dish a quick spray-coat. It helps prevent snow from sticking to it during the winter. —Frank DeLuca / Morrisville


Check any leftover containers of sunscreen that you didn’t use up this summer. If it’s past its expiration date, you can’t count on it to protect you next summer. But that doesn’t mean you have to throw it out. Sunscreen makes a very good everyday moisturizer for hands and feet. It also makes a pretty good shaving cream in a pinch. —Ellen K. / Newtown Apple picking time is upon us! When it comes to picking apples off the tree, don’t just pull them oiff. Give them a twist instead. They should come off easily and that’s how you know they’re ripe. Also, keep some wet wipes handy, especially if you have kids. By the time the family is done picking apples, everyone’s hands will be sticky with the juices. Wipe them clean or you may end up with handprints all over your car. —Alice Match / Langhorne

Langhorne Council for the Arts’


“Coolest Critters” Photo Contest

olk artist Edward Hicks is the most famous favorite son of Langhorne Borough. His many paintings of “The Peaceable Kingdom” are immediately recognized by his stylized images of lions, lambs, cattle, cheetahs, bears, and other wild beasts, reposing in harmony. Langhorne Council for the Arts will honor Edward Hicks this year with a new photo/calendar contest. LCA invites owners of all kinds of pets -- finned, feathered, or furry -- to enter a photo of their favorite critter(s) in our photo contest. There are no geographic restrictions; all pets are welcome in our Peaceable Kingdom!  ALL photos entered into the contest will be pictured in our beautiful 2018 calendar, but twelve critters will be declared the “Coolest Critters.” Coolest Critters will be featured on the cover and in the monthly photo collages, and will be determined by popular vote. Votes are $1 and can be submitted online with a major credit card, by check, and by cash (cash is only accepted on the last day of the contest, Oct 28, at Olde Harvest Day in Langhorne, PA).  You can vote as often as you want, for as many animals as you want.

A few pets have already entered the contest, and can viewed at http:// langhorneartseventshe Friends of the Delaware Canal will host an illustrated program, “Towpaths  Enter and Tales, an Aerial Photographic History of the Canals Along the Delaware today, and let the voting begin! River,” on Wednesday, September 13, at 7:30 PM in the Old Library by Lake Afton, 46 West Afton Ave., Yardley, PA. Mike McCann, a photographic historian, examined the properties along the Delaware River during his 21 years with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. He reviewed aerial photographs taken from 1930 to the present under a stereo microscope, while in the process of determining whether land qualified for New Jersey’s Green Acres Program. Since his retirement, Mr. McCann has created a presentation of scanned aerial images, featuring the River Valley as it has changed (or not) over time. For those curious about how things once were, particularly prior to the 1955 flood, this program includes images of the Point Pleasant, Lumberville, and Yardley bridges that are now gone.

Chuck Bednarik: The Last True 2-Way Player in the NFL


oncrete Charlie” Chuck Bednarik, the greatest linebacker in Eagles history, was a menacing tackler. “He just snapped them down like rag dolls,” recalled Tom Brookshire in a 1993 interview in which he compared Bednarik favorably over Dick Butkus. The last true 2-way player in the NFL was born in the Lehigh Valley. After graduating from High school, he joined the Army and served 30 missions as a B52 waist gunner over Europe. Returning home, he spent his college days at Franklin field playing for Penn University. Chuck was elected to the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 1967. Bednarik was the first pick of the 1949 draft and quickly became an important member of that 1949 Championship team. He spent his entire career as an Eagle. Eleven years later he was still the central Even many Eagles fans don’t know that figure for the 1960 championship season. In the championship game that year, Bednarik Bednarik was equally great as an O-lineman was all that stood between Green bay’s Jim Taylor and the goal line with 8 seconds recalled Bednarik later in life. “His head snapped remaining and the Eagles up by 4. Chuck stopped and the ball flew and Chuck Weber falls on it. I him there and sat on him as the time ran out, clenched my fist, closed my eyes and said this ensuring the Eagles victory. “It’s ok to get up now, game is F-n over!” Jim” Chuck said as he removed his weight from With 8 Pro Bowls to his credit, the 5 time AllTaylor. “The game is over.” Pro who led the league annually in menacing hits Late that same season Concrete Charlie was (if there was such a stat) probably changed the involved in another enormous stop in a game with offensive strategy of every opposing team.

But he ran into In 1969, a panel of college coaches and players the most famous NFL hit of all time as Bednarik along with sportswriters voted Chuck Bednarik as layed him out, jarring the ball loose. The Eagles the Greatest College center to ever have played. recovered to help secure the win and Gifford We sometimes forget that it was his play on the would miss the next 18 months. offensive side of the ball that sparked the Eagles Bednarik’s celebration over the sudden to grab the future greatest Eagles offensive good fortune was misconstrued as mocking lineman of all time. the unconscious Gifford. “I really puffed him”

Missing just three games in his entire career, he blocked for Norm Van Brocklin’s 24 touchdown passes in the 1960 championship season. As a rookie he anchored the 1949 championship team. His nickname “Concrete Charlie” was pinned on him by a sports writer when he learned that Chuck was a concrete salesman in the off season. The name was perfect, as many a defender crashed helplessly off his fearsome blocks. George Allen, long time NFL coach said, “He was the strongest, surest snapper I have ever seen and an absolutely brutal and unbeatable blocker.” Full time linebacker, full time center, and full time off season concrete salesman, Bednarik had little use for the latter-day ballplayer. “The positions I played, every play I was making contact” he said, “not like…Deon Sanders. He couldn’t tackle my wife.” Chuck’s disdain for today’s players grew to include his own team. Bitter that salaries and benefits far exceeded his pay in the fifties, Chuck decided in 1996 that Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie should fork over $1,500 for 100 copies of Bednarik’s book. When Lurie refused the “tip money,” Bednarik grew distant from the organization. Before the 2005 Super Bowl he openly rooted against them saying: “I hope the 1960 team is the last Eagles championship team”. Despite his recent bitterness, when Chuck Bednarik died on March 21, 2015 all Eagle players and fans mourned. Said Jeffrey Lurie: “With the passing of Chuck Bednarik the Eagles and our fans have lost a legend. Philadelphia fans grow up expecting toughness, all-out effort and a workmanlike attitude from this team, and so much of that image has its roots in the way Chuck played the game.” ■ —George Porgeman / Yardley

That Wonderful Time of Year in Pennsylvania — Apple Picking Time!


pples are now in season! Pennsylvania apples are available in many varieties; they have a range of health benefits; and can be used in many different ways to add a tasty addition to meals and snacks. Soon in Pennsylvania we will start to feel the crisp autumn breezes. While out for an early morning walk this week, I saw a few red leaves on the maple trees in my neighborhood. That can only mean one thing, apple season is here! Pennsylvania is one of the top apple producing states in the U.S., this according to the Pennsylvania Apple Marketing Program. Each year, Pennsylvania apple growers produce approximately 440 million pounds of apples, making the state the fourth largest apple producer in the country. The group also states that while apples are grown in all of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties, the state’s top-producing counties are Adams, Franklin, Bedford, York, Berks, Lehigh, Lancaster, Snyder, Schuylkill, Cumberland, Erie, Lycoming, Centre, Columbia, and Chester. Many varieties are grown in Pennsylvania. Some, such as Gala, McIntosh, Honeycrisp and Nittany, are good for a quick snack or packing in a school lunchbox. Varieties to consider when you are preparing baked apples are Cortland, York and Rome. Granny Smith apples make wonderful apple pie filling. Other apples great for pies include Ginger Gold and Fuji. You can also dice your favorite apple variety and add to salads and slaws, or slice an apple and add it to a sandwich. There may be a good reason that people often say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Apples offer many health benefits. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) states that a medium apple, about the size of a

An apple a day really might keep the doctor away tennis ball, counts as 1 cup in the MyPlate Fruit Group. For a 2,000-calorie diet, the daily recommendation is about 2 cups of fruit. One medium apple provides almost 20%, four grams, of the daily recommended amount of fiber, both soluble and insoluble. Fiber helps the body maintain regularity. In addition, one medium apple with the skin is only about 100 calories. Apples also contain antioxidants. Antioxidants are substances found in some foods that have been shown to prevent or delay some types of cell damage. Apples also contain potassium which can promote heart health. The USDA reports that in 2015 the average American consumer ate around 11 pounds of fresh apples a year! After apples are harvested and cleaned, a wax made of natural ingredients is applied. When you are selecting apples, look for firm fruit with

smooth clean skin. Apples will come in a range of colors. Test the firmness of the apple by holding it in the palm of your hand (do not push with your thumb). It should feel solid and heavy, not soft and light. Do not purchase apples that are soft or have dark spots. Wash apples when you are ready to eat them. To wash, rinse apples in cool water and pat dry with paper towel before eating. Apples should be stored in the refrigerator. Keeping apples at room temperature will allow them to get mushy more quickly. Fresh apples are a great snack or dessert, eaten whole or sliced. Here are a few additional uses and tips for apples: ~Dip apple slices in peanut butter or serve with crackers and cheese for a quick and easy snack. ~Fresh apples make delicious baked fruit desserts, such as breads, muffins, cobblers, and crisps. ~Apples are delicious baked alongside pork or poultry or chopped into stuffing or sauces. ~To prevent sliced apples from browning, dip into a mix of 1 part lemon juice and 3 parts water. So remember that Pennsylvania apples can be found in many varieties; they have a range of health benefits; and apples can be used in many different ways to add a tasty addition to meals and snacks. Apples are in-season now in Pennsylvania, so why not try a new variety today! ■ —Mandel Smith, Educator Reprinted by permission of Penn State Agricultural Sciences. Visit NF7

A Shipshape New Roof For a Navy Veteran’s Home

be Brooks, owner of Kanga Roofing, has special respect for the men and women who have served our country. “It takes bravery and honor to volunteer to serve,” he said. “And we want to do what we can to say thank you.” Every year, through its annual “Support a Veteran” Roof Giveaway, Bucks County’s most trusted roofing company does just that —by installing a new roof free of charge for a local veteran or veteran’s family who may be in need. This summer, Mr. Brooks and his crew replaced an old, leaking roof at the home of a deceased veteran’s widow on Junewood Drive in Levittown. Billy Kubina, who had served in the U.S. Navy on the legendary aircraft carrier USS Midway, was 100% disabled by the time he passed away in 2010. “His wife Kathy is struggling to maintain the house that Billy loved so much,” said Sandra Barber, a longtime friend who had nominated the Kubina house for the Veteran Roof Giveaway. The Kanga Roof craftsmen tore off the cracked and weathered roof and applied an attractive new water-tight roof that will keep the Kubina home dry and snug for many years. Kanga Roof has become well known for its tradition of giving back to the communities it serves, helping neighbors in need, and honoring our veterans.
