Bell Tavern youths raise $4K for Chester County Futures

Youth from the Bell Tavern community in Downingtown hosted their second annual fundraising event, Olympics for Little Hearts, on Saturday, September 29. About thirty children planned, promoted, and volunteered, raising $4,000 for local nonprofit Chester County Futures through ticket sales, donations, and sponsorships.

“The Bell Tavern community is working together to teach their children to be good citizens through “3S”: save, support, and serve,” shared Srinivasa Nagoti, a parent of volunteers. The children wanted to continue the tradition they started last year when they raised $2,000 for UNICEF. This year they sought out an organization working closer to home. The goal was to not only collect donations, but also to bring the community together and raise awareness for Chester County Futures. Organizers shared, “Education is extremely crucial to success, so when we realized that many students who should be educated lacked resources, we wanted to help.”

The event was held at East Ward Elementary School in Downingtown. The day featured fun, games, and food. Children played field day style games.
