Temporary Changes to Safe Berks Policies – Updated July 13, 2020
To protect the public health from the risk of COVID-19, as well as the health of Safe Berks residents and staff, we have enacted several changes. These changes are temporary; we hope to return to previous practices in the future. We are very grateful to the community for your support of Safe Berks as volunteers, donors and advocates, and we ask for your continued support during these challenging times.
Donations & Volunteers:
At this time, Safe Berks is not accepting donations of used goods.

To donate new items, please contact Mindy McIntosh, Director of Development, at 610-468-9637 or MindyM@SafeBerks.org to make arrangements.
Entry to our building is limited to residents and staff. Volunteers are asked not to visit at this time. If volunteers have any questions, please contact Mindy McIntosh.
Thank you for your understanding. We will keep you updated through social media (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter), and our website, www.SafeBerks.org.
Thank you and be safe!
Safe Berks Seeking Volunteer Cooks!
Safe Berks is seeking volunteers to prepare and deliver dinner to residents, every evening of the week. Another option is to sponsor dinner for Safe Berks residents from a local restaurant. This also helps local restaurants, who have been hit hard by the COVID-19 restrictions. We are so grateful to all the volunteers who have provided dinners for residents. Together, we are building a Safe Berks!
For more info, or to schedule a dinner, please contact Mindy McIntosh, Director of Development, at 610-468-9637 or MindyM@SafeBerks.org.
