The Peace and Social Concerns committee announced contributions to the following organizations in June 2018:

  • The Broad Street Ministry for the care of Philadelphia’s homeless.
  • Tuition assistance for a SEGA School student in Tanzania Africa.
  • The First Place Transitional Home in Ardmore that provides a temporary home for refugees in this area and helps them find more permanent placement.
  • The Universal Hope Initiative is working to rebuild an apiary in western Puerto Rico that is an important source of livelihood for a community which was severely damaged by hurricane Maria.

In addition, there was a special collection in September 2017 to raise funds which we sent to Friends Live Oak Meeting to help Houston’s hurricane victims.
