Dear Diary

July 14 - Sometimes there's just no being prepared for what life brings. When "Lynn's" purse (ID, banking info, etc...) was stolen it was like dominos tumbling...each issue triggering the next. One minute she's a single mom of 4 working hard to make ends meet and the next...she's behind in rent and facing eviction. Our donors are here for us so that we can be here for someone like Lynn, faced with the unexpected.

 

June 19 - What a day! Trained 2 new Cupboard volunteers, assisted a young man with his resume, phone minutes, PECO bill & Job Locator application, helped another man complete a rental application, provided support for yet another to get his bike repaired (his only means of transportation to and from work) ...and distributed bus passes, groceries, grocery cards and some clothing
June 08 - Received 300 rolls of paper towels compliments of the Rotary Club of West Chester! This donation with get us through the summer...Thank you , thank you, thank you!
May 31 - Year to date, we have prevented 13 evictions, 11 utility shut-offs, distributed 11,243 lbs. of groceries, provided transportation support for 27 and job search/resume support for 27 more.  In addition, we filled 42 requests for items such as clothing, home goods and baby supplies.  In total, 220 households have been assisted since January 1, 2015.
