Fred Beans Automotive Group partners with the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation to provide 750 brand-new coats to children in need
Fairless Hills, Pa. – Just in time for colder weather, Fred Beans team members met a delivery truck at the Fairless Hills Branch of the YMCA to unload hundreds of brand-new coats. Beginning in 2008, when the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation launched its New Coat Program, Fred Beans dealerships have annually set aside funds to provide warm winter coats for children in need. Over the years, Fred Beans dealerships have provided more than 8,500 coats through the Fred Beans Automotive Group’s involvement with the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation. This year, 15 Fred Beans dealerships made a combined donation to fund 750 new coats. The YMCA of Bucks County helps distribute the coat donations made by Beans, arranging deliveries to local schools and organizations such as the Warminster Heights Community Center. All coats purchased with the Fred Beans donations stay local to support families in areas where the auto group operates. Fred Beans is one of about 180 automotive dealers that annually participates in the New Coat Program. Their partnership with the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation has led to extraordinary results, with 575,000 brand-new coats purchased to-date for deserving children in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. “We appreciate the work of the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation to organize this annual donation drive to help so many kids in this five-county region,” said Beth Beans Gilbert, vice president of the Fred Beans Automotive Group. “It is so rewarding to be part of a network of automotive dealers committed to their communities, and of course, it is rewarding to see the results of our partnership in all the new coats that get distributed to those who need them most.” According to the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation, a new winter coat remains one of the most requested items via local social services agencies. All the new coats generated from its New Coat Program are distributed through a network of more than 350 nearby social services agencies, YMCAs, homeless shelters, school districts and more.

SCORE Bucks Mentors Available for Talks with Business Groups, Organizations
In an effort to boost awareness of SCORE Bucks County and its no-cost business mentoring services, volunteers with the local chapter of the national nonprofit organization are seeking opportunities to speak to like-minded business organizations. Tony Moore, the chapter’s community outreach committee chair, has spoken to several area rotary clubs, business associations and chamber of commerce groups as part of a campaign to drive greater awareness. He is available to speak with other groups throughout Bucks and eastern Montgomery counties as well. “I or another SCORE mentor can talk about virtually anything,” said Moore, a SCORE mentor of more than five years. “I want to make sure SCORE is top of mind as far as helping people out.” In addition to sharing insight on SCORE and the mentoring services the group of former and current business leaders provide to entrepreneurs, Moore often speaks in general terms about how to start a business, as well as other business topics of interest relevant to the group or organization. Like the chapter’s other 70 mentors, he has decades of business experience under his belt. Before joining SCORE, Moore worked in sales and marketing roles for more than 35 years with Kraft, Sara Lee, Kellogg’s, and Keebler. Moore views the speaking engagements – and the drive for greater awareness of SCORE – as a win-win for all. Entrepreneurs and new business owners often find a SCORE mentor who can help with various aspects of starting and running a business. And the chapter connects with experts interested in giving back through mentoring or serving as a subject matter expert for the chapter’s webinars. “There’s a volunteer group that’s going to offer you free support,” Moore said. “These are all former entrepreneurs or executives that have a ton of experience that they want to share with you.” Moore will speak at an event for the Newtown Business Association on Dec. 9 and hopes to add additional speaking engagements to his calendar. Get involved If interested in having SCORE Bucks County mentor Tony Moore speak to your group, please email him at tony.moore@scorevolunteer.org.

Malvern, Pa. (October 14, 2022) – Meridian Bank CEO Chris Annas participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the opening of the ACCESS Community Center, Chester, PA’s first all-ages community center. Meridian joined other prominent Philadelphia area corporations in supporting the project, donating $50,000. Annas noted, “Meridian joins the Chester community in looking forward to this neighborhood being transformed with the opening of ACCESS. It’s another of the many, vital, community improvement projects which we have been privileged to support.” Jack Surgent, a Villanova University graduate and CPA, created the non-profit organization that constructed this new, 8,000 square foot, $3 million dollar facility, on the former ball fields of a condemned primary school at West Seventh and Booth Streets. Organizers envision this center as a respectful environment for all ages to gather for learning, recreation and celebration. ACCESS will also provide medical services and food distribution as well as support for those who live with mental illness, are victims of violence, and/or have other unique needs.

SCORE Helps Pastry Chefs Develop Recipe for Business Success
Husband and wife pastry chefs Jemil and Sally Gadea together have more than 35 years combined culinary arts experience. Jemil put his skill to the test, beating out other chefs to craft winning desserts on an episode of “Chopped Sweets” in 2020. Both have formal culinary arts degrees and have worked for many years in prestigious dining establishments in Washington D.C. But, when it came to starting a bakery and gelato business in Sally’s former Bucks County stomping grounds, the Gadeas realized that this was a challenge not easily addressed with a spatula and mixing bowl. In April 2021, the couple sought help from SCORE Bucks County in creating a business plan and financial projections for Panna Gelateria, which they opened in Yardley in July 2022.
