Glad to do our part!

"I was & continue to be truly in awe of the comprehensive impact of Methodist Services' affordable housing, education programs, community counseling services, & sustainable urban farm, located on a 22-acre campus in West Philadelphia, as well as in Bangor & Easton in Central Pennsylvania. In 2016, I was asked to join Methodist Services' Board of Directors and currently serve as an Officer of the Board: Secretary. What an honor to contribute in a small way to the consequential work of this 143-year-old nonprofit!”

We were honored to receive an Exceptional Leadership Service Award for “support & passion in partnering with The City of Philadelphia - School District of Philadelphia Community Schools!” Shout out to Methodist Services’ fabulous Staff!

Philadelphia's Cradles to Crayons has established a model inkind distribution program. Methodist consistently counts on quality Cradles to Crayons products: diapers, wipes, children’s clothing - sorted, cleaned, bundled & sized for easy pick up and re-distribution. Staff arranges house visits, uses bulk clothing distribution as incentives at Parenting Collaborative classes, and invites families to attend educational sessions with clothing as a bonus for attendance. Staff have seen a dramatic increase in program attendance. Program participants receive much-needed clothing for infants through teens. Annually, Methodist Services has been the beneficiary of 3,000 items of clothing as well as hundreds & hundreds of cases of diapers!

We are so grateful!
