We are in discussion with a major home center chain regarding an employee volunteer day this spring when they will come to help us build out our Giving Garden. If we are able to do as much as we hope, we’ll be in need of volunteer gardeners for this season to help us with all the planting, weeding and harvesting. We’ll be growing vegetables, flowers and bedding plants to enrich the lives of our food pantry clients.
We have a new cottage for visiting interns, mission teams and writers and artists looking for a place of retreat. It’s on the grounds of the Brandywine Summit Camp Meeting, a lovely Victorian Christian campground, just twenty minutes from our headquarters. It will be available for use from April 15-October 15 of each year. We’re excited to have this inexpensive option for our volunteers as the result of a donation from one of our patrons.
