A Message from NBA re: the COVID-19 Situation, Resources and Cancellations

Posted on: May 12th, 2020

A note to NBA Members,
In this time of unprecedented crisis caused by the COVID-19 virus, all of our members have been called upon to make sacrifices for the welfare of our community, but some have had to sacrifice more than others.  While some members have been able to successfully operate their businesses remotely, others have been forced to shut down completely and lay off employees.  These businesses and their owners, employees, and families are part of the fabric of our communities.  They have been there to volunteer and support our community in the past.  Now they need our support.

The United Way of Bucks County has established the Bucks County COVID-19 Recovery Fund.  The United Way will administer the fund and all donations will be distributed through the United Way to Bucks County residents in need.

NBA members who are able are encouraged to donate to the Bucks County COVID-19 Recovery Fund generously to assist other Bucks County residents through this time of crisis.  The NBA also encourages its members to make the Recovery Fund known to other members, their families, and employees who may use the assistance to make ends meet. 

Turn to your fellow members and have confidence they will turn to you.

The number one priority of the Newtown Business Association now is to protect the health and safety of our members and members of the community.

Out of an abundance of caution for public health and to help mitigate any potential for the spread of COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, many scheduled events and meetings have been adapted, postponed or cancelled.  Check the website for updates on future scheduled events.

We will continue to monitor information from local and federal officials regarding the COVID-19 virus as we consider the status of other events planned for the remainder of the year; check back on this website for updates.
