Bucks IU Awarded Flag Flown Over the Washington Capital

Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick hon­ored the Bucks County Intermediate Unit (Bucks IU) with a flag that had flown over the US Capital buidling in Washington DC.  The hon­or was bestowed in recog­ni­ton of the 5th Anual Stockings for Soldiers event.  Designed to send some cheer to our mil­i­tary per­son­nel sta­tioned away from home over the hol­i­days, the pro­gram has grown from 100 stock­ings its first year to 1,400 in this it’s 5th anniversary. 

The pro­gram has expand­ed from being tied to edu­ca­tion­al sup­ports for the stu­dents of just one class­room to now encom­pass­ing the entire Bucks IU at Samuel Everitt so that every stu­dent has an oppor­tu­ni­ty to par­tic­i­pate in a way that best sup­ports their indi­vid­ual edu­ca­tion­al program.

Another inspir­ing aspect of the event is how it brings togeth­er so many busi­ness­es and orga­ni­za­tions through­out Bucks County — what an amaz­ing com­mu­ni­ty effort!
