When we disburse our Share Our Plate funds to the local charities we support, we receive acknowledgements and letters of gratitude, but we don’t always find out how the money is put to use.
The recipient of our July and August donation, Arts Holding Hands and Hearts in Chester County, PA, let us know exactly how they intend to use the funds – $902.00.
Jan Michener, Executive Director of AHHH, writes, “There is a program that I have been wanting to bring to the 350 children in Coatesville’s Head Start called “Build-A-Band” with Lisa Wolfe. I met with Lisa yesterday and said I would see how I can raise the $1200 needed to bring her program to Head Start for 4 months to show the administration the power of music to connect and heal, and then actively work to raise the next $1200 so we can offer it for the full school year. I told her I believe in miracles and that the program would happen. Then your check arrived today. Your church is the answer to my prayers.”
