We held our 2nd Annual Walkathon and Holiday Boutique fundraisers, and also kicked off a Volleyball League and Casino Night. These were all fun and profitable events. Our fundraising efforts for 2009 raised almost $3,000 dollars!
The Dinner Project has been steadily growing since its launch in April 2009. By year end we had prepared and given away 28 family-size meals.
During the summer a pastor in New York contacted us on behalf of a young mother who had just lost a child to stillbirth. The Remembrance Project contributed $500 dollars toward the funeral costs of that baby boy. It was extremely gratifying to be able to ease the financial worry of a grieving family.
In September, The Backpack Project donated 100 backpacks filled with school supplies to Bancroft Elementary School in Wilmington, DE, who distributed them to students in need. A special thanks to WSFS Bank employees for donating nearly half of those supplies!
