The fourth grade students from SS. Simon and Jude School, West Chester, participated in their annual service project after Easter. The students donated their own candy, and with the coordination of their teachers, Susan Mobile and Sara Van Alstyne, they made over 100 Easter baskets and cards that were delivered to the West Chester Senior Center for the seniors’ Easter lunch party.
This is the 22nd year that the school’s fourth grade students participated in the service project.
The members of the West Chester Senior Center, located at 530 E. Union Street in West Chester, are active adults over the age of 65 who enjoy conversation, computer classes, foreign language and book clubs.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
