One-Day Indoor Yard Sale Supports Annual Fund Drive
On March 7, we raised $7,900 at our One Day Yard Sale, made possible through the generous donation of goods and venue by Richard Snowden and Bowman Properties. We appreciate everyone who came out to join us, and thank our volunteers for all of their help, including (left to right) Clare and Kelly who helped customers by packing their purchases!
We still have few sconces left and if you are interested please contact us by e-mail at email@example.com, or call 215-248-8810 if you have questions.

Dear Friend of Chestnut Hill:
As you know, more than 40 years ago, several Chestnut Hill residents formed a charitable trust to raise money to support the programs of the Chestnut Hill Community Association and other organizations. This trust, known as the Community Fund, has conducted annual drives to raise funds for the upcoming year’s programs, including the Pastorius Park summer concerts, the Center for Enrichment, Teens Inc., Meals on Wheels, Keystone Hospice, and the planting and maintenance of various Germantown Avenue pocket parks and train stations. Other notable recipients have been the Friends of the Wissahickon, Chestnut Hill Historical Society, Chestnut Hill Youth Sports Club, Woodmere Art Museum, Friends of J.S. Jenks School, The Stagecrafters, and so many other organizations that make Chestnut Hill such an extraordinary place to live.
The programs supported by the Annual Fund Drive enhance the physical beauty, safety, and quality of life in our community. Most of these organizations were founded by and continue to serve us through the tremendous volunteer services of residents of Chestnut Hill and surrounding neighborhoods. This is an opportunity to contribute what you can and show how much you appreciate Chestnut Hill!
We know that you’re being asked to contribute to many other worthwhile organizations, but these programs are important to our community and they need our continued support. The Annual Fund Drive proceeds are distributed in grants during 2015. All contributions to the Fund are tax-deductible.
Make a donation online, or mail a check to the Chestnut Hill Community Fund, 8434 Germantown Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19118, Attention: Annual Fund Drive, and be a part of the spirit of giving this year like so many of your friends and neighbors!
Gail and John Detweiler
