1ST District Friends and Family Toy Drive
Monday, December 12, 2016
On December 3rd 2016 the Sisters and Brothers of the 1st District:
Adah Chapter #1 Union Lodge #21
Martha Chapter #2 Rising Sun Lodge #2
Star of Bethlehem Chapter #8 Star in the East Lodge #1
All came together on one accord. We came together for the cause of brotherly and sisterly love, as well as giving back to “OUR” community.
An invitation was opened to all, friends and family. There was no need to be a part of the Masonic Order. We all came together as a way for us to fellowship and to casually meet and greet each other. A light repass (brunch) was shared, along with a short informal program. Each individual was invited to bring a toy to be donated to children less fortunate. All toys were donated to “The Neighborhood House” in Southbridge, Wilmington, DE.
We had the pleasure of delivering an immense collection of toys for both girls and boys of all ages. Along with the toys, coats, hats and gloves was donated. Ms. Kelly Lacy of “The Neighborhood House” expressed her sincere Thanks on behalf of “The Neighborhood House” advising all toys will be displayed in a designated TOY ROOM for children and families to come and pick whatever their hearts desired. And it was because of the 1st District that someone would have a blessed Christmas.
A special Thank you goes out to the 1st District Friends and Family committee…..YOU GUYS ROCK!!!! There was a vision and you guys made it come to life. Let us continue to show our good deeds through our actions and works.
