Bring your dogs, cats, or other pets, rain or shine, for a special blessing and meet adoptable animals from the Berks Animal Rescue League (ARL). Find out about their journey to become a no-kill shelter. We will be accepting donations at the event and also throughout the month of September (in the designated box in the church lobby). The ARL is always in need of kitty litter, cleaning supplies, paper and cloth towels, blankets, etc. You can find the ARL’s Wish List at www.berksarl.org.
TASTE OF HOPE: Check your calendar for October 4, 2018 from 5-8:30 pm when Taste of Hope is being held. Your presence is especially important to us. It encourages our families, board, staff and partners to move forward into a new year of service to families and children in Berks County.
