In addition to our usual expenses for summer camp and other needs of children served by the Chester County Department of Youth & Families, Chester County’s Children has been busy choosing several worthy non-profit organizations to receive grants from our Arts Grant Program, funded by a generous donation in honor of Mrs. Marjorie Blumenthal.
Congratulations to Sarah Karnbach, the first recipient of the Sister Maria Consuelo Sparks Memorial Scholarship!
North Star of Chester County:
Chester County’s Children Board President Nancy Zion, along with Board Members Keith Hayes, Bill Friedmann, Laurie Ryan , and Jen Hohenberger presented a check for $3500 to Don Neimetz, Executive Director of Northstar of Chester County. North Star of Chester County guides Chester County’s single working parents with dependent children, who are at risk of homelessness, toward stability and financial independence. These funds are earmarked for the organization’s 2023 summer camp program.
