GSH to Host Plant Sale Fundraiser with Saxony Gardens Greenhouse
Cabot, PA - To raise funds for its children's bereavement retreat "Camp Good SAM," Good Samaritan Hospice (GSH), a mission of Concordia Lutheran Ministries, is hosting a plant sale on May 27 from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. at the gazebo behind the Lund Care Center, 134 Marwood Rd., Jefferson Twp.
Saxony Gardens Greenhouse will supply a large selection of flowers, vegetables, baskets and flats. Twenty percent of the proceeds will benefit Camp Good SAM, an overnight bereavement camp for children and adolescents to help them cope with the loss of a loved one. Cash, checks and payroll deduction for Concordia employees will be accepted.
This fun-filled camp lets children and adolescents ages 6 - 18 know their grief is normal and helps them face their loss. Each child is paired with a specially trained volunteer and a memorial service is held at the end of the weekend for campers and their families.
For more information on the fundraiser, call Concordia Director of Development Jennifer McIntire at 724.352.1571, ext. 8363. For more on Camp Good SAM, call 1.800.720.2557.
