Starting a New Chapter
Devoted, inspiring, spiritual, passionate, compassionate, an advocate, determined.... these are a few of the ways that fellow ACT in Faith Board members would use to describe Lark Worth, founding member and driving force behind the formation of ACT in Faith.
Super Swinging Summer!
On Sunday June 1 we showed off our new tent at Super Sunday and 4 days later we hits the streets again for the first of several Swingin' Summer Thursdays. On both occasions, our dedicated volunteers engaged in LOTS of great conversations with passers by- raising awareness for the need that exists in our community and the work we're doing to help.
West Chester Story Slam Presents Center Stage, an occasional series of storytelling events. Unlike West Chester Story Slams, that are monthly events where anyone can get on stage and tell a 5-minute story based on the theme of the night, Center Stage is a night of curated stories selected and arranged for the audience. Think of it as an anthology of non-fiction told live on stage.
On Tuesday June 3rd we invited the community to join us for a Fundraiser at the Landmark Americana Tap and Grill. The restaurant had agreed to donate 25% of each check's total to Act in Faith. We so grateful to everyone who came out in support of us and judging by the return it seems like there were quite a few of you. According to the Landmark this was the most succesful event like this they ever hosted. The grand total came to $216.55! Thanks so much for all your support!
