Benchmark Lending partners with The MAGIC Charities Foundation in Bucks County, PA

The “Benchmark Giveback” program makes us happy! Today we partnered with The MAGIC Charities Foundation of New Hope, Pennsylvania to provide backpacks and school supply kits for students in need at the Klinger Middle School in Bucks County. Volunteers of all ages from the Klinger Middle School Farmer’s Market were also participating – a very efficient and well-organized team!

MAGIC, “Making A Great Investment in Children,” is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to advocating for and investing in children. Steve and Sharon Grosso founded The MAGIC Charities Foundation in 2017. They have a special place in their hearts for Bucks County, both were born, raised and still reside in Bucks County, PA.

What a great day!
