The Stewpot is a major part of this initiative as we have agreed to house 150 individuals and families by the end of this year. Volunteers can choose to donate an entire kit or provide items for a kit. Kits include full-sized shampoo, body wash, razors, toothbrush/paste, and deodorant.

Collect Trauma Therapy Items for Presbyterian Children's Homes and Services (PCHAS).

Founded in 1903, PCHAS is a non-profit organization that was created to respond to the crisis of orphaned children by the tuberculosis epidemic. For 118 years, PCHAS has provided relief and recovery for children in need. More recently, it has developed a caring culture with comprehensive programs and case management services to help strengthen vulnerable families so that they can stay together. Items collected will be used in Trust-Based Relational Intervention activities to support children and families to find fun, low-risk, ways to connect. (Examples are art/play toys, activity books, board games, or cooking mixes)

PHPC Kids and Families Acts of Kindness

Families can choose from one Act of Kindness from our list, then during PHPC Serves week take a picture to share your kindness and send it to . Together we can spread kindness all over our community. No act or volunteer is too small to make a difference.
