Update March 30
During these trying times, we need to support each other more than ever. Over the past couple of weeks, Township Staff and Supervisors have been reaching out to residents, particularly those who may be in the high-risk group. We know many of you have been doing so as well. With the extensions of President Trump’s and Governor Wolf’s orders, further help may be needed in the days to come.

We recommend a phone call to check in with friends and neighbors. If help is needed beyond a caring call, please feel free to reach out to the Township at the following email: manager@uppermakefield.org. We are here and will make every effort to help. Please note that some of our local businesses are offering delivery and/or curbside services, if you are not aware.

Everyone is contributing in some way, and it is very much recognized and appreciated. Upper Makefield has a rich history of rising to the occasion. This time has been no different. We have seen many examples of this throughout our community.

~And many thanks to our Police, Fire, and Emergency Services, as well as Doctors, Nurses, and Healthcare Professionals!
