Community Generosity


We are so proud to be part of a community that cares and gives back during these difficult times. A $300.00 donation was made to the Brewerytown Sharswood CCA/NAC program by the Shaw family.  The family of four (4) especially their daughters Parker and Clark co-owners of Philly Crafty Girls managed by their mother Monique Shaw donated their profits from making pot-holders to the NAC. 

The girls donated the money so BSCCA could continue to help give food to families in the Brewerytown Sharswood community.  Not only did the girls want to donate the $300.00 they wanted to volunteer by helping to bag and give out food.  The entire family Blair (the father) and Monique (the mother) volunteered and look forward to helping out at the NAC.
