Men2Serve as Santa
Sunday Dec 16th @ 9:30 am
Gifts for a local family in need
I recently heard from Sandra Claus (yes, that's Sandy's actual name! :-) who serves as Community Relations Coordinator for the Phoenixville School District and Kayla Richards who serves as the Secondary Home and School Liaison for the district.
Kayla explained that there is a family that could use our help. The family was forced to evacuate their home because of toxins discovered in their home, having to go to the ER for treatment. They cannot presently return to their home and are living elsewhere until its deemed safe to return home.
Kayla writes: 'It means the world to mom and the boys will be ecstatic.... Again, thank you.'
The Daniel Foundation will purchase the 5 items Kayla requested and will bring them to Men2Serve on Dec 16th.
II. Gifts requested from PACS
I also received a request from Carol Berger from PACS (Phoenixville Area Community Services). Carol writes:
Greg: We seldom have treats to distribute to families (and also individuals who are often older, sick or disabled). Since it's the holidays, it's great when we can distribute things like:
Cookies, candy, snack chips, pretzels, peanut butter crackers (or other crackers), nuts, (ie. almost any treat that any of us enjoys).
Small household items
Batteries, flashlights, screwdrivers with interchangable bits, wrenches, pliers, tape measures, light bulbs and almost anything else from a hardware store that you think might help a struggling family.
III. So, here's the game plan:
1. We will gather at 9:30 am on Sunday December 16th at the Bookworm Building (aka known as 'the Worm') which is located next door to 'Carters Saab Services' (100 Nutt Road, Phoenixville, PA 19460)
2. The Daniel Foundation will purchase and bring the gifts requested for thee family in need by Sandy and Kayla
3. If you, and other, Men2Servers would like to purchase any of the items that Carol Berger of PACS listed, please do so and bring them with you so we can wrap them at Men2Serve!
4. We will spend our time on Sunday the 16th wrapping the gifts together! (I will bring the tape and wrapping paper)
If you can join us, please email me so I can order the proper amount of donuts, coffee n stuff!
As always, thank you!
All the best,
