January 20th: Love for Refugees

@ 1125 S. Broad St.
Philadelphia, PA 19147

On the weekend of the inauguration we want to create a space where we are active in our love, and clear about our intention to be surrogates of hope. We hope you’ll join us for intentional acts of compassion, as well as some prayer, and worship.

We are collecting supplies for relief kits that we will be assembling together on the evening of Friday, January 20th. These kits will be distributed to refugees in Syria, and other places throughout the world by Mennonite Central Committee.

Feel free to donate any of the following suuplies leading up to, or on the evening of the event:

4 large bars bath soap
1 plastic bottle shampoo (13–24 oz; place in resealable plastic bag)
4 large bars laundry soap (Some stores carry Fels Naptha®, Sunlight® or Zote® brands)
4 adult-size toothbrushes
4 new bath towels (medium weight, dark or bright colors)
2 wide-tooth combs (6–8 in)
1 fingernail clipper(good quality)
1 box adhesive bandages(minimum 40 count, assorted)

February 11th: Second Saturday Game Night

@ 1125 S. Broad St.
Philadelphia, PA 19147

We gather in South Philly to play board games, strategy games, card games and games of all shapes and sizes. Bring a game, bring some snacks, bring a friend, and meet some people… but please don’t bring zombies. They make such a terrible mess.

February 18th: Free Baby and Kids Goods Exchange

@ 1125 S. Broad St.
Philadelphia, PA 19147

We hope to bring our communities together to share resources and get necessary kid/baby stuff to families that need them. This is always a free event, bring items to share if you can, but don’t stay away if you have nothing to share.

As of now, all events are hosted on Saturdays from 10am-1pm, but check in on Facebook in case times/dates change. Refreshment and bags are provided. We swap clothes, books, strollers, maternity, accessories, toys, and whatever else a baby or kid could use. When in doubt, bring it along.
