Several of our Presbyterian Women prepared and served dinner at the Keystone Mission on Olive Street, Scranton to about fifty men, women, and children.

 

Currently the PW is collecting new or gently used suitcases, backpacks or duffels for "Suitcases for Kids".  This is a mission which provides these items to children in our local foster care program.  In November, 1995, 10-year-old Aubyn Burnside learned the average child in foster care moves three to four times and traditionally carries his/her personal belongings from home to home in black garbage bags. Today she still serves as CEO of Suitcases for Kids.

PW has sponsored a Fall Craft Fair the past 3 years and hopes to continue with this - as it is a great opportunity to meet new people and support our local crafters and vendors.                                                        Keep looking for our Craft Fair dates.

 

In the past, The Presbyterian Women supported the Synod Mission offering.  in 2018 it was designated for Lily's Place, a Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome Center in Huntington, West Virginia. Babies born with NAS require specialized care. At Lily's Place, they strive to make them as comfortable as possible while going through the weaning process. This facility is designed in a very specific manner to achieve this goal. Lily's Place provides observational, therapeutic and pharmacological care to infants suffering from prenatal drug exposure. The epidemic of drug addiction in our nation is exploding. In order to serve the tiniest of those affected, Lily's Place opened its doors in October 2014 as the first Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) Center in the United States. A baby bottle bank will be on the table at each coffee hour to receive any contribution.
