Kiwanis raises $500 for Protestant Home

Twenty-two young people re­cently helped the Kiwanis Club of Phil-Mont raise $500 for the Phil­adelphia Prot­est­ant Home.

The fun­draiser has taken place each fall for more than a dec­ade at the Prot­est­ant Home, at 6500 Tabor Ave. in Lawndale.

Kathy Mc­Donough, a Kiwanis mem­ber and teach­er, re­cruited her St. Wil­li­am Ele­ment­ary School stu­dents to vo­lun­teer at the break­fast held each year. St. Wil­li­am closed in June, but Mc­Donough asked stu­dents if they were still will­ing to help, and she re­ceived a good re­sponse.

Stu­dents  from St. Cecil­ia, Present­a­tion BVM, May­fair Ele­ment­ary, Ro­man Cath­ol­ic, Ta­cony Academy Charter, Bish­op McDe­vitt, Ant­o­nia Pan­toja Charter and Ce­dar­brook Middle School as­sisted at the Nov. 3 event. The youths served pan­cakes and saus­age to guests, who paid for the meals that were pre­pared in the PPH kit­chen by Kiwanis mem­bers. ••
