About the Event

COVID-19 has hit our community hard. This collaborative event helps us help the most vulnerable in our area. The Phoenixville Area Time Bank and Orion Communities are joining forces to create a virtual event that supports your wellness, builds community, and raises needed funds.

For more than 40 years, Orion Communities has been a grassroots organization addressing unmet needs in our community – including shelter, food, transportation and programs – to help children and families from low income households move towards a brighter future.

Since 2004, the Phoenixville Area Time Bank’s goal has been to reward and promote the spirit of volunteerism and give back to the community through a pay-it-forward mindset. PATB provides a network of support for individuals and partner nonprofits like Orion Communities.
