Calling All Chester County (and surrounding area) Philanthropists

shadylady_pa(Z6 PA)March 14, 2006

If any of you are wondering what to do with extra plant divisions or seedlings this spring, please consider donating them.

I am a member of the Malvern Moms Club, and we will be setting up at the 1st annual Malvern Blooms Home and Garden show on April 30th. We will mostly be selling used books, but I would like to add a small plant sale. (Of course, when I took over the fundraising post last fall, a plant sale was the first idea that came to my mind, but I didn't imagine it would fall into place so easily!) The proceeds will go to benefit Home of the Sparrow, which is a local organization that provides homeless women, mostly mothers, with training and opportunities to help them get back on their feet and become self-sufficient.

The Moms club is a 501c3 organization. We basically are just a bunch of stay-at-home and part-time working Moms who get together to have fun, support each other, and to do community service projects for other mothers and children in need. None of our fundraising proceeds can be used for our own purposes, so if you are considering donating plants, please know that ALL the proceeds would go to Home of the Sparrow.

If you are interested, please post a follow-up or email me. I would really appreciate anything you could give!

I'd like to donate some plants. Sounds like a great cause. Where and when do we drop off the plants?

Thank you so much ms.marris. I apologize for the delay in responding to you. It's been a rough week here. I'll email you with my address, and you can drop the plants off anytime they are ready. The sale isn't until April 30, so there is lots of time!
