the Community Coalition NEWSLETTER
Welcome to the Community Coalition’s
May 2021 E-Newsletter
The Community Coalition supports and celebrates individuals, families and social institutions through a collaborative fundraising effort for our 5 non-profit member organizations
A message from Johanna Gilbert
the Community Coalition’s Board President
30 years is a darn respectable age and 8.1 million dollars distributed in that time shows how a unique model of non-profits and supporters working together to raise and distribute funds keeps them and their community viable.
As I enter my 3rd year as Board President, I’ve been involved with the Community Coalition almost from the start. Over the past 27 years, I have been privileged to represent Citizen Advocacy on the board of the Community Coalition and honored to work on committees, as Secretary, as Treasurer, and now as President. I care for each of these organizations and plan to celebrate our accomplishments the whole year (and then some).
If you – like me – want to support those who are improving our communities in various ways, I thank you and invite you to join us during our 30th year celebration! And I thank Citizen Advocacy of Chester County, Open Hearth, Inc, Orion Communities, Phoenixville Area Positive Alternatives(PAPA), and the Colonial Theater for all their contributions to our community and community members over the years.
Here’s to 30 more!!
