ACT in Faith Sponsors 5th Annual “GET IT DONE DAY”
On Monday October 12th from 1 to 6pm several local agencies, including ACT in Faith of Greater West Chester, the Charles A. Melton Arts & Education Center, Bridge of Hope of Lancaster & Chester County, Chester County Health Department, Home of the Sparrow, and The Salvation Army of West Chester, are sponsoring “Get It Done Day.” The event is designed to provide aid for local individuals in need. All services offered to guests will be free of cost.
“Get It Done Day” will feature a variety of services including job readiness and placement services, housing/shelter services, opportunity to open savings and checking accounts, financial/budget counseling, on-site loan applications, healthcare coverage enrollment support, health screenings and free flu shot, provided by Walgreens, social service benefit and enrollment information.
“Chester County has a vast social service network, but many people either aren’t aware of the services and support that are available, have difficulty accessing the services, or both,” says Denise Antonelli, President of the Board of Directors of ACT in Faith and an associate with law firm Gawthrop Greenwood, PC. “Get It Done Day was designed to bring as many services as possible under one roof for a day, so the un- and under-employed have ‘one-stop’ access to the services they need. Connecting people to those services is central to the mission of ACT in Faith, so taking a lead role in coordinating Get It Done Day was a natural fit.”
“Get It Done Day” will take place at the Charles A. Melton Arts & Education Center at 501 E. Miner Street, West Chester, PA. To volunteer, donate or find out more about ACT in Faith visit here.
