Walking the Distance
The Clerk of Courts staff participated in the Bucks County Judicata 5k Run/Walk on Wednesday, July 20th in an effort to benefit Legal Aid of Southeastern PA. Donned in pink t-shirts, designed by the department’s summer interns, staff members enjoyed an active summer evening on the 3.1 mile course in Doylestown. With onlookers and other staff members cheering them on, the team ran, walked and even pushed baby carriages to the finish line.
With the team’s help, $20,000 was raised to provide quality legal representation to low-income individuals.
We're In Support
Every year the Clerk of Courts office tries to give back to the community. The tragic events that took place on September 11, 2001 and the ongoing war on terrorism have impacted the country in a significant way. We support our troops and pray for their safe return.
Robert Pollock is a Sergeant in the United States Army, and a Bucks County employee who is serving in Iraq. The Clerk of Courts office has been sending care packages to him in an effort to provide some comfort from home. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and to all the families of the men and women serving in the armed forces.
For the past seven years the Clerk of Courts office has participated in fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Each year the team members from the Clerk of Courts set a goal for the amount of money they would like to raise and every year the goal has been surpassed. This year over $4,000.00 has been raised for The American Cancer society. There was a special reason to set the fundraising goal higher this year. The Clerk of Courts office lost two employees who were battling cancer Ginger Hoch and Jody Helmuth. They might have lost their fight, but we will never forget them.
There were several fundraisers that contributed to the overall success of the team in reaching the goal. There was a group effort this year in making seven different holiday baskets to be raffled. Employees from the Clerk of Courts office donated the gifts for the baskets and spent their time publicizing the event. It is because of their dedication and willingness to help others that this fundraiser was a tremendous success. Another noteworthy event sponsored by The Clerk of Courts office was the sale of Roses for Valentine's Day. By donating a few dollars everyone was able to support a wonderful cause and bring a smile to a loved one's face. The sale of the roses raised over $700.00. Additionally, T-shirts were designed to commemorate the Bucks County Courthouse and were sold for $10.00 each. They featured the first two historical courthouses and the current courthouse that was built in 1960's. The t-shirts were available in a multitude of colors and sizes, making them very popular among county employees.
Another fundraiser that the Clerk of Courts office participated in was the first annual Joseph D. Helmuth Memorial Golf Classic at Talamore Country Club. Each member of the office contributed a donation in honor of our former co-worker Jody Helmuth. His life was tragically cut short due to Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The golf outing raised over $12,000.00 and the monies went to the Helmuth Educational Fund and the Lymphoma Research Foundation. The Clerk of Courts office also participates every year in Bowl for Kids' Sake. This is a fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County. Proceeds benefit children in Bucks County in need of mentoring and companionship. The Clerk of Courts office would like to thank the generosity of the community in making every fundraiser a success.
