In August, we held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially launch our newly relocated Welcome Center.  Located in the middle of the Souderton Shopping Center, the new location is easily accessed by potential and current volunteers.  

In addition, it was also celebrated that the Variety Shoppe recently expanded by over 2,000 sq. feet.  It now has a larger selection of toys, housewares, holiday items, linens, and an expanded Auction Department.  The auctions can be viewed by downloading the Care & Share Auction App.  Sweet treats, great conversation, and coupons were all part of the celebration!  Thanks for stopping by and celebrating with us!

In attendance at the open house was

The Chamber of Commerce for Greater Montgomery County,

Central Bucks Chamber of Commerce, and

the Mayor of Souderton, Dan Yocum.

      The Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce recently awarded us the Charles H. Allebach, Jr. Community Service Award.  This was in recognition and appreciation for providing extraordinary service and contributing to the quality of life of our communities.
      Joining us at the luncheon were five volunteers who have been serving with us for over 42 years, as well as one of our founders, Janet Vincent.  We are grateful for the ongoing support and commitment of all of our team members - volunteers and employees!
