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 Bill Henry.
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 Twelve Baskets Full or to local agencies to give to families in need. Contact Louise Shaheen to assist or for more information.
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.
