PPH Auxiliary

A History of Community Service


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 every day 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 purpose of the Auxiliary is to be mindful of the needs of PPH and to participate in the various fund raising 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 meets the second Tuesday of the month at 12:15 p.m., except in July.  You may bring a sandwich and enjoy coffee and cake before the meeting at 11:30 a.m.

What Residents Say

"In my two years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.….especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of residents Jack & Bernice Segal
