A History of Community Service
The flea market and Dot’s Closet are canceled until further notice due to COVID-19.
August update: The July meeting of the PPH Auxiliary was conducted on PPH TV. Updates on finances, fundraising, and gratitude activities were provided. PPH’s new CEO John Dubyk was welcomed with a “self-care kit” presented by several members.
The August virtual meeting will be held on PPH TV channel 57 on Tuesday, Aug. 11 at 11:30 a.m.
Although Dot’s Closet is still not open, items are available for sale to individuals as requested (see members or Patricia Coyne at 8403).
All in-person Auxiliary activities have been canceled until further notice.
Since its establishment in 1889, the Auxiliary of The Philadelphia Protestant Home has had a tradition rich in service and community spirit. Members involved in fundraising, social activities and direct resident service programs are equally dedicated to supporting the mission of PPH.
These members have helped to successfully meet the Auxiliary’s goal of contributing thousands of dollars to the Benevolent Care Fund, the purchase of equipment, renovation projects, a van, resident amenities, support services and programs, expansion of social opportunities—all while serving as an integral component of everyday life for older adults living at PPH.
Membership provides you with the opportunity to work closely with other individuals who share common interests and enjoy contributing to a positive cause. The Auxiliary meets monthly.
The purpose of the Auxiliary is to be mindful of the needs of PPH and to participate in the various fundraising activities to benefit our many projects and programs.
Members of The Auxiliary can provide community service in many areas:
- Several fundraisers are conducted throughout the year — card parties, clothing sales, ham & potato salad and pork & sauerkraut suppers and bazaars.
- Personal visits to residents.
- Packing and delivering gifts to residents in December.
The Auxiliary has three flea markets a year.
Dot’s Closet is the first Thursday of each month from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m on the third floor of PPH’s Lawndale building.
