HELPING THOSE IN NEED THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!
Butler Township Commissioners and employees are looking to support our community neighbors who may be experiencing some hardship throughout our winter month. Currently there are individuals and families that are unable to buy enough food from week to week. Butler Township will be hosting a donation sponsored food drive to support any Butler Township resident that is in need of food assistance through the holiday season. Butler Township is looking for non-perishable food items and/or a cash donation. Please consider supporting your community by dropping off a donation at the Butler Township municipal building prior to December 16th.
For individuals and families residing in Butler Township that need food assistance, please contact Butler Township starting Wednesday, December 2nd until Thursday, December 3rd from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. The Butler Township phone number is 724-283-3430 x218. Food requests will be confidential, township address verified and a designated time to pick up their box of food will be assigned for Saturday, December 19th at the Butler Township Municipal Building.
Beginning Saturday, November 7, Preston Park will be softly re-opened. We do apologize for the delay and appreciate the patience park visitors have shown. Construction activities are still in progress affecting the restrooms and storm water pond so please avoid these areas at this time.
The park entrance is now accessed through the iron gates off of South Eberhart Road. Traffic circulation is one-way up the hill and around the flag pole.
Parking opportunities exist in a lot to the left of the road and diagonal.
