The Greater Newtown Exchange Club (GNEC) honored several major contributors during a dinner last week at the Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
The honorees included representatives from the DeFrehn Corporation, The First National Bank and Trust Company of Newtown, McCaffrey’s, The Rose Group, Creighton’s Auto Repair, The Seiler Group of Raymond James, Burn’s Auto Repair, Kenderdine Heating Oil, Re/Max Properties, Swartz-Givnish Funeral Home, Stuckert and Yates, Barry Luff Auto Repairs, David Callahan and the Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
Each honoree received a framed plaque and mug to recognize their contributions to GNEC, which works to prevent child abuse.
“While the honorees represent a wide variety of local business interests, they have one thing in common. Each has made significant contributions to GNEC’s mission to raise funds to support the prevention of child abuse and to assist Bucks County families and youth,” a press release from the club said.
The honorees were recognized for their work to support the organization, including through the annual charity golf tournament and silent auction, as well as assistance in selling license plates and special edition Christmas ornaments.
Additionally, honorees contributed to GNEC’s efforts to partner with local charities, including the Bucks County Children’s Advocacy Center. That partnership resulted in a Pinwheel Garden on the grounds of the Newtown Middle School in support of the prevention of child abuse.
GNEC is one of more than 700 exchange clubs throughout the United States and Puerto Rico that follow the lead of the National Exchange Club in supporting organizations that perform child abuse awareness and prevention services.
