Welcome to Community Backstop

Community Backstop is focused on meeting the needs and improving lifestyles for those who have found themselves in overwhelming situations. You can be involved in helping an individual or family in their time of need; someone who lives right in your community.

It’s hard to believe, but we are fast approaching our annual Texas Hold ’em fundraiser.  This year’s event will be on May 19, 2022 at the Aronimink Golf Club ballroom.  Rest assured that we are monitoring the coronavirus/COVID-19 situation on a daily basis, but at this point, we are confident that the situation is such that we will be able to host the event in a safe manner.  Please feel free to reach out to any CB board member for the latest updates, or check back on this website for official news.

Thanks to both our long time and new supporters for helping us reach our 17 year milestone last year.  It’s been almost three years since we’ve been together for our in-person fundraiser, and we are especially grateful to those who have enabled us to continue operations during this period.  Now that we’re deep into our second decade and the pandemic is (mostly) behind us there’s no reason to slow down!  Our upcoming event is on Thursday, May 19, 2022 at Aronimink Golf Club.  To get a feel for our event, click on the link below for an NBC news interview with one of our founders and a family who we were able to help:
