Thank you to everyone who came out for the Painting for a Purpose event on February 24th. This was the second year we had this type of fundraiser and the feedback is unanimous – we will turn this into an annual event! Although it was originally scheduled for a weekend that snow was predicted, the new date still gathered 47 people together for fun, fellowship and fundraising!
We painted a beautiful canvas with a calming message – Just Breathe. This is useful for us all to remember during busy times and especially in the depth of winter when darkness seems never-ending. The staff and Board members of the House provided refreshments for all as well as numerous raffle baskets. Thank you to John and Brook at Pinot’s Palette in Collegeville for a fun time together, painting for a purpose!
Since many people asked for it, here is the Avacado Corn Salsa recipe:
2 avacados for every 1 jar of Trader Joe’s tomato-less corn salsa – enjoy!
Save the Date: April 20, 2019 from 9am-12pm at Kimberton Fairgrounds
With such an amazing response at our first spring cleaning event last year, we decided to do it again! Make a pile of all those papers and come spring, you’ll have a great place to shred -for a great cause!
We’ve had so many wonderful volunteers over the past three years but we are always looking for more! If you are interested in learning about how to volunteer with our organization, please join us on Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 7pm at the Kimberton Conference Center. We are excited to share with you all the new opportunities and work with you to help women break the cycle of poverty and dependence.
