The New Hope Solebury Community Association (NHSCA) is collecting food and supplies for local food banks and material for use in sewing protective masks for local first responders, health care providers and families requiring protective measures.

Items requested are:

  • Sewing supplies – Bed linens (please launder first), bolts of cloth, elastic, and thread.  Place in a sealed plastic bag with the contents identified on a piece of masking tape attached to the bag.
  • Non-perishable food, protective gloves, and hand sanitizer. Please place the items in paper bags.
  • Financial donations to purchase items – Checks should be made payable to “New Hope-Solebury Community Association, Memo: COVID-19 Relief,” and mailed to PO Box 62, New Hope, PA 18938

Items can be dropped off beneath the carport of the Wedgwood Inn, at 111 West Bridge Street, in New Hope.

The materials and items will be distributed to local sewing circles and food banks by members of the NHSCA board. The collection will continue through April 30.

NHSCA has contacted the Superintendent of the New Hope-Solebury School District and local church leaders to offer their support for local families who may be in need during the covid-19 crisis. 

The first relief delivery of hand sanitizer, paper towels, and 48 hand-sewn masks was presented to the New Hope Eagle Fire Company on March 30.
