This week’s spotlight is on Hannah, and her Hope For Hannah movement !
Okay, here it is. The Levittown t-shirt inspired by the Sections challenge we held on Levittown Comfort. We met with the gang from the sponsor of that challenge, 41 Sections, and together we have decided that all proceeds from the shirt be donated to Hope for Hannah and her cause. First up , lets send a thank you to the sponsors of this shirt, which will assist in the production cost of the shirts, and allow all of us to raise more proceeds from the sale !! They are …….
Keeping with 41 Sections apparel quality standards, these shirts will be made right here in the USA and be on sale for $16.
The shirt drive will kick off Wednesday morning with an announcement on Levittown Comfort. We do have a few more spots for sponsors left, if any business or group would like to chip in. Start spreading the word now to your L-Town family and friends, don’t miss out on this really cool shirt, and all for a great cause as well !

Meet Shea Andress ! Shea was our 41 Sections trivia winner. Shea is sporting her winning t-shirt from Jim and the gang at fortyonesections.com
The 41sections brand started as an idea by two brothers, Jim and Matt Mulholland, to create a company using a combination of things that they were passionate about. The idea was to combine art, clothing, and the town they grew up in. 41 sections is an indie clothing brand.
Long before Facebook wall posts and Twitter feeds, residents of Levittown relied on a weekly newspaper for their local news.
The following excerpt was found in The Levittown Times, circa 1952:
“We [The Levittown Times] have been requested by the Slater family of Levittown to inform new residents that the warranty card for the stove may be found in the broiler, under the chrome rack. Don’t accidentally burn it. It’s important.”
The Levittown Times–”Levittown’s Home Newspaper” was a great resource for residents of the new community. This local paper featured only stories concerning residents of Levittown. Anyone living in another community, would have found this paper of little interest.
Some popular features included an “Around Town”, filled with birth announcements and gossip, along with “For Women Only”, focused on the Levittown woman and her household duties.
Levittown Comfort is YOUR Levittown Times. This blog is designed to provide Levittowners with valuable information, from Levittowners. Unlike a weekly newspaper, this blog allows for immediate response. At Levittown Comfort, your stories and comments are encouraged and welcome.
These findings and more are shared by Dr. Chad Kimmel, the immediate past president of the Pennsylvania Sociological Society. His research interests include the Levittown Heritage Oral History Project, Traditions of Deviance Project, and the Pennsylvania Sociological Association Archival Project. To read more, click here :
