BCIU Supports Annual People First Event

BCIU Transportation employees, Erica Wolf and Stephanie Mullarkey, with Santa and retired BCIU employee, Jake Bechtel, at People First. BCIU provided transportation for the event.

Businesses and non-profit organizations from across Berks County came together on November 12, 2019, to support People First – an annual event that provides holiday meals to the less fortunate. The event is held annually at the Queen City Family Restaurant in Reading. Elsayed (Steve) Elmarzouky, owner of Queen City, closes his restaurant for the day, opening the doors only to invited guests who may otherwise not have a hot holiday meal in a warm setting.  

The Berks County Intermediate Unit continued its support of the event by providing transportation. Additionally, staff members from the ECYEH program volunteered their time to serve meals during the event.  

The BCIU congratulates Mr. Elmarzouky for another successful event and thanks all those who volunteered to make the event possible.
