Letters for Rose is a volunteer opportunity to bring cheer to residents in retirement communities, and a special project of Sophia Schnackenberg, one of our St. Francis youth. The opportunity is for people of all ages at St. Francis in-the-fields to write letters, cards, notes, or draw pictures that will be delivered to residents at Daylesford Crossing.
Volunteers have the freedom to draw and write about whatever topics they want, as long as it is appropriate, and bring them to a collection box for delivery. Volunteers are encouraged to ask questions which will engage the recipient in active thinking. Please refrain from asking/writing anything about religion, politics, or negative ideas. All letters will be proof-read to ensure nothing inappropriate is sent out.
A collection box is near the Letters for Rose poster in the Narthex, and collections will continue through spring 2022. More information can be found at https://www.lettersforrose.org/. If you have suggestions for additional retirement communities to receive our creations or have questions, please contact Sophia, who is collecting Letters for Rose at St. Francis-in-the-Fields.
As part of an outreach drive, the Deacons of the Diocese will be collecting new or gently worn jeans. All sizes for men, women, and children, clearly labeled with size and gender. The collected jeans will be brought to the cathedral during the Diocesan Convention and then be distributed to those in need. The deadline for this collection is Thursday, October 21 and a bin will be in the Narthex for your donation. Please contact Diane at the church office with any questions.
A Message from CCFB about COVID-19:
The Chester County Food Bank provides an essential service to the community and we will continue to do so taking the recommended COVID-19 precautionary measures for the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, partners and the community. We are working with our partner member agencies and food cupboards throughout the county to best serve our neighbors now and planning for ways to meet the increased needs as the situation potentially escalates.
How Can You Help? DONATE MONEY!
Monetary donations will make the biggest impact. In an effort to meet the needs of our community, we are focusing on emergency distribution, including senior and emergency food boxes. Our buying power enables us to stretch your dollars so we can feed more people. Give today or consider making a monthly gift to sustain your giving for the months ahead.
A message from the Food Cupboard about how to help them help local families:
We always welcome donations, but especially at an unprecedented time like this.
Checks and gift cards for Giant or ShopRite can be mailed to the West Chester Food Cupboard (431 S. Bolmar St. West Chester, PA 19382). Online donations are easy to make either for a one-time gift or a monthly pledge. A monthly pledge will make you a member of our popular GEMS program – our Give Every Month Supporters program.
Thank you, as ever, for your support of the West Chester Food Cupboard
…because no one should go hungry!
