As you may know, a Tinicum family has suffered from a devastating house fire.  The family was not at home, so they are safe.  They did, sadly, lose their beloved dog and of course, many belongings.  PCF has made a donation and will continue to accept funds to be sent to the family to help with any needs they have as they recover from the fire and their losses.  To make a donation, please go to their website - and use PAYPAL or mail a check.  Please note the family's name in the memo area.

In addition, a GO FUND ME site has been set up by friends and family.  If you are able to donate funds, any amount is appreciated.

Here are additional ways you can assist:

-Clothing donations are now being accepted at Frenchtown Home and Hardware
- Gift Cards to local restaurants, grocery stores, and places they can buy other household goods (i.e. Target, Walmart etc) are now being accepted at Country Chic - A New & Recycled Boutique
