Summer 2017 Youth Groups

This summer we were blessed with three weeks of service from several different church youth groups! We enjoyed our annual visit from Linden-Linthicum United Methodist Church from Maryland! This year they shared 5 of their amazing youth and 2 of their incredible adult members. We are so grateful not only for all of their hard work at the Clothing Bank of Delaware and Elizabeth House, one of our houses for women; but also their faithful spirits, fun attitudes, and dedication. We have loved having your group come the past several years, and hope to see you all back in the future!

A big thank you to Crossroads Presbyterian Church youth group and leaders out of Middletown for making us a part of their Stretch Week this summer. They were a hard working, dedicated group who showed up ready and able even through one of the hottest weeks! During their time with us, they sorted thousands of pounds of clothing, helped the Clothing Bank with orders, weeded and mulched our gardens, painted the Palmer House fence, and more. We are grateful for their sense of community and faith through service. Thank you and we hope to see you soon!

At the end of the summer, we hosted St. Frances from Baltimore, who collaborated with two other Baltimore churches to come to Wilmington for three days to work. They filled an entire dumpster as they not only cleaned out our basements in housing but also helped Westminster’s furniture ministry and Calvary Presbyterian by cleaning their space while they were here.
