Partners in Outreach was incorporated as a registered charitable organizaion in April, 2010. Prior to that time, there were years of involvement with the collection of new and gently used clothing for the St. Agnes Day Room in West Chester at Easter. It was recognized that people loved this opportunity to give to their local community in such a simple and meaningful way. The birth of "Operation Easter Outfit" took new meaning as a few people began managing the program and spreading the effort across communities.
The overwhelming generosity of Chester County citizens inspired the establishment of a 501(c)3 organization with the name of Partners in Outreach. A group of friends then worked together to develop a logo and a mission statement and a community wide collaboration evolved into a refined and expanded program. This year, Partners in Outreach distributed over 1500 brand NEW outfits to children in the St. Agnes Day Room in West Chester, Coatesville Youth and Womens Alliance, Mission Santa Maria in Avondale, Bridge Academy in Coatesville, St. Anne Parish in Phoenixville, Vincent de Paul Society in Spring City, ABVM Parish in West Grove, Sacred Heart Parish in Oxford, Chester County Family Academy, as well as Kirkbride Elementary School in Philadelphia.
We continue to achieve our mission through partnerships with organizations and individuals. The world is full of people who have the ability to make change happen, but just don’t know how, or have the resources to do so. At Partners in Outreach, we want to facilitate the connection between communities who are in need, and those who can give. At Partners in Outreach, we know we won’t change the world, but we will change someone’s world.
How? Through a select few, well-organized campaigns each year, we may provide an outfit, camp supplies, books or tutoring to those in need, and in doing so, engage more people in our efforts to make the world a place to give back.
As Partners in Outreach, our goal is to foster relationships, facilitate partnerships and provide opportunities to service others with love, integrity and humility.
