Kildare’s, Doc Magrogan’s & Gaudenzia Holiday Fundraiser

Posted on Tuesday, December 12, 2006


Kildare’s and Gaudenzia Join in Holiday Toy Fund Raiser!

Kildare’s and Gaudenzia, Inc are teaming up to collect holiday gifts for the Gaudenzia Women and Children’s programs throughout the area!

Gaudenzia has been providing services to our community since 1968 and is now the largest non-profit provider of drug and alcohol treatment and prevention services in Pennsylvania. In 1979, Gaudenzia pioneered the first long-term residential program for addicted pregnant/parenting women and their children. These programs help to rebuild lives, families and restore self-esteem.

Kildare’s goal is to inspire the community to give generously to those in need. All gifts will benefit the 200 children presently in residential treatment with their recovering Moms, helping to break the cycle of addiction between generations.

Many of the women have very few resources and want to provide their children with a sense of hope as well as the joy of the Holiday Season. By teaming up with Kildare’s, we believe we can make their holiday memories and experience meaningful!

Kildare’s will have collection boxes at all of their locations, at Doc Magrogan’s in West Chester, as well as at Market Street Print & Copy in West Chester.
