invite dCentral Bucks Family YMCA is flipping pancakes to spread the word and the community is invited! The Y will host three community breakfast events aimed at celebrating how the Y strengthens the communities it serves. Breakfast will be hosted at three branches in Fairless Hills, Warminster and Doylestown.

The breakfasts, which are free and open to the community, will include traditional morning fare including pancakes, eggs, Danish, coffee and tea provided by McCaffrey’s and Simply Fresh by McCaffrey’s and Shoprite Warminster. Entertainers and emcees for the events are Pat and Sean Kelly. Impactful videos and presentations by staff and volunteers will also be featured. At Fairless Hills, renowned public speaker and children’s author, Sergeant James Menard, will be delivering a message of HOPE – Helping Ordinary People Everyday.

Central Bucks Family YMCA launches a campaign each year to raise funds that ensure that everyone in the community has access to vital programs that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Each day the Y works to support programs that address community need including THRIVE cancer wellness, veterans wellness, Empower U for teen girls, 7th grade initiative, Living Active for seniors and Y-DPP Diabetes prevention program. In addition to programs that address community need, the Y also provides financial assistance at all of their locations providing more than $1 million in assistance to individuals and families in Bucks County.

“Every day the Y works to support the people in our community who need help by addressing community need,” said Zane Moore, President/CEO of Central Bucks Family YMCA. “We’re excited to meet our community and share our story at these community breakfasts.”

This year, Central Bucks Family YMCA hopes to raise $1.2 million between their two associations. Central Bucks Family YMCA, with branches in Doylestown and Warminster, currently manages Lower Bucks Family YMCA, with branches in Fairless Hills, Morrisville, and Newtown.

Funds raised will support THRIVE cancer wellness program, Living Active for older adults, 7th grade initiative, financial assistance, and other programs designed to directly impact the Central Bucks community.  Donations can be allocated for specific programs and services.
