Spree 2019 funds went to support:
Uncommon Grounds Café:
We were able to throw a Christmas party for a group of youth in Aliquippa who all had lost someone in their family within the past year. Spree funds allowed for a veritable feast, complete with plenty of dessert options. Each child also went home with a bag of gifts to open on Christmas, and each parent was also given a gift. The party was held at the Uncommon Grounds Café in Aliquippa, and a grand time was had by all!
LaRoche University Students
& Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO)
: Two La Roche college students were given a scholarship to fund their attendance at CCO's annual Jubilee conference held in downtown Pittsburgh.
: Games, crafts, and multivitamins were purchased to support families in impoverished mountain villages in Mexico. These families attended a week of camp at Camp Kikomar in Tuxpan, Mexico, and Spree funds helped support their arrival at the camp and the supplies they needed while there.
Mothers Of Preschoolers (MOPS)
: Funds from the Spree Soup Sale annually support our Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS), which is a community group of moms who gather twice a month at Memorial Park for friendship and encouragement.
