Picking your Christmas tree is so much fun – thanks to our friends at Ridley Park Presbyterian Church – RPPC for providing 25 live trees, stands, ornaments and lights for our Out of School Time and other families. No doubt they look lovely in everyone’s homes. #ridleyparkpresbyterianchurch #christmastree #ornaments #lights #Thanks #chestereastside
Barbara Macken lived her faith as a member of Swarthmore Presbyterian Church’s Outreach Committee. Mrs. Redd paused at the Outreach Display following Barbara’s memorial service.
We were all saddened on the passing of our dear friend and volunteer Barbara Macken. She believed in our mission and cared about nutrition – on Mondays and Wednesdays she could often be found bringing food, stocking pantry shelves, coordinating deliveries and creating shopping lists. She collaborated with Mrs. Redd to assure healthy and tasty food choices for our children throughout the school year and during Camp Phoenix.
Barbara was a blessing to so many and we will miss her tremendously.

“Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer.”
“If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is ‘Thank you,’ it will be enough.”
