Collenbrook collects non-perishable food items on a continual basis and delivers these donations to Chester Eastside. Recently, FoodtoDonate.com partnered us with a Wawa in Morton that freezes their perishable food items and donates them to Collenbrook, which in turn divides those donations between Collenbrook and Chester Eastside.
Collenbrook also hosts an annual Thanksgiving Food Drive, which is donated to either Chester Eastside or the Community Action Agency of Delaware County (CAADC).
In addition to food collections, Collenbrook also hosts “Fight Hunger Forecast,” a used books cart for cash donations located in our Fellowship Hall. Take a book, leave a donation! The books are donated through members and friends and help us to raise even more funding for an area that needs it so desperately, Chester Eastside.
We participate in a variety of fun fellowship activities. Some examples of recent activities are: musical concerts, dinners, hikes, visits to historical places, visits to gardens, visits to farms, and more. Some events have a nominal cost but most are free to attend. We are always open to suggestions for new ideas!
