Adopt-A-Highway

Four times a year, members of St. Philip’s pick up trash along Tollgate Road in Quakertown, in conjunction with the Bucks County Adopt-A-Highway program.  To find out when the next pickup date is, and how to help, contact Jerry Burke.

Turkeys R Us

Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Turkeys-R-Us team asks the families of St. Philip’s to contribute a turkey to be given either to The King’s Jubilee or to local families (along with other food items to provide a complete holiday meal).  Contact Mark Smerkanich or Denise Yurchak to assist or for more information. 

St Nicholas Gift Giving

For St Nicholas Day (December 6), the children of St Philip's are asked to bring in a toy, game, or book, and place it (unwrapped) under the church Christmas tree.  All donated items are given to Laurel House in Quakertown.

St Nicholas Day 2012 was the first time this giving opportunity was offered, and it was a great success!  Seventy-Five items were given.  Thanks to all!

Monthly Outreach Collection

St Philip's Monthly Outreach Collection focuses on essentials that cannot be purchased with food stamps. Items like soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, sunscreen, paper goods, and many like items are not eligible under that program, and folks might have to do without when such things do not fall within their budget. 

Each month, a different category of personal care items is targeted.  A bin has been placed in the narthex to collect the items.  Donations are delivered to Manna on Main Street in Lansdale and the Keystone Opportunity Center in Souderton.

To find out more, or to offer assistance, contact Mark Smerkanich, Louise Shaheen, or Irene Forssen.

The schedule of collection:

January                           Oral Care Products
February                         Paper Products
March                              Baby Care
April                                 Cleaning Supplies
May                                  Skin Care
June                                 Bath and Shower Products
July                                  Oral Care Products
August                             Paper Products
September                      Cleaning Supplies
October                           Bath and Shower Products
November/December     Turkeys
                                         St Nicholas Giving Tree (for Laurel House)
                                         Adopt-a-Family / Gift Cards

In addition, non-perishable food items are collected on an ongoing basis, to support Keystone's & Manna's food pantries. The food bin is located in the hallway near the great room doors.

Your help and generous contributions are appreciated!
