Community Services

The Buck Hill Falls Community Services Committee raises funds from Buck Hill residents to provide financial support to local agencies that promote the health and welfare of Barrett Township residents. Grant recipients have included, among others, The Barrett Paradise Friendly Library (this library was originally founded by Buck Hillers -- hence the “Friendly” part of the name!), the Pocono Health Foundation, the Barrett Township Volunteer Fire Department, and the local Meals on Wheels, Friendly Community Center, and Boy Scout, Cub Scout, and Girl Scout troops.

In 2015, the Community Services Committee awarded $35,000 in grants to 13 local charities.
