Trish of Paper Bag Child has poured her heart and soul into making the most beautiful, welcoming apartment possible for the families that will be living there. The past few months she has been blessed by generous donations from members of the community businesses who have opened their doors for fundraisers and generous people willing to sacrifice their precious time to help in pulling this project together.
This ongoing project came to a peak today when all of the gathered donations were brought to the shelter to be set up, assembled and to fill the empty shelves of the space. Thank you to Trish for organizing and delegating everything to each of your helpers to make such an amazing home for these families.

The beautiful quilts on the beds were hand made by the women of First Presbyterian Church in Allentown.
