This year we are partnering with Orion Communities in Phoenixville to raise awareness and funds for the ‘Hungry & Homeless’ in Phoenixville and surrounding communities. We’ll add a 1 mile noncompetitive Stroller & Wheelchair run/walk along paved sidewalks and driveways on campus. Trail Runner’s will enjoy our beautiful French Creek Conservation Trails on campus, while traversing the banks of French Creek and over clean water tributaries, within our breathtaking hardwood forests and plethora of native plant-life. Our Event will include a Wellness Fair (30+ vendors), free lunch for registrants, free massages, free healthy snacks, live music, cash prizes for top male & female finishers, raffles, free children’s activities, free Kid’s Fun Run, and custom made vendor T-shirts. Performance T-shirts for pre-registrants, and 100% cotton T-shirts for same-day registrants while supplies last. For more information call 484-364-9412.
THANK YOU to the Kimberton Waldorf School for partnering with Orion Communities to bring awareness to hunger and homelessness.

The Phoenixville Chamber of Commerce led a ribbon cutting ceremony to recognize the new office and growth of Orion Communities, a non-profit that serves the most vulnerable neighbors in the greater Phoenixville area.
Participating in the ribbon cutting event were two Chester County foundations that have been instrumental in Orion’s growth.
The Phoenixville Community Health Foundation provided a technology grant to update office technology as well as help with the implementation of a new web-based data management system.
The Chester County Community Foundation awarded Orion a ‘capacity building’ grant for several items including marketing materials, Orion’s first Annual Report and improvements to the physical office due to the dramatic increase in clients in the preceding year.
Orion Communities believes everyone is entitled to life’s basic essentials of shelter, food, clothing, transportation and medical services. With the support of generous donors and volunteers, Orion is able to increase their impact in serving those experiencing hardships in the community.
Join the Phoenixville Chamber and Orion Communities for an Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony! The Open House will be from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, and is a perfect time to get to know Orion and the various services it provides, while the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will be 4:00 pm.
Light refreshments will be served at this event, but don’t fill up on those too much – Orion Communities is partnering with Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant in Phoenixville that day for a Give 20 promotion!
