Alumnae Ministry & Service Opportunities
The Alumnae Association Board's Ministry and Service Committee, in partnership with Alison McGrorty Crotts, M.D. '04, supports Strawberry Market, a food and necessities pantry for the patients of Strawberry Mansion Health Center in North Philadelphia.
The Gwynedd community is the exclusive provider for the market, so we are asking for continued support to keep it fully stocked! The market is in need of all items on its wishlist.
Items are available to the patients free of charge. The COVID-19 pandemic ravaged this already-struggling neighborhood, leaving many patients unable to work or provide basic necessities for their families. With the help of the Alumnae Association, we have kept the market stocked with food, personal care items, clothing, and cleaning supplies since May 2021.
Items can be purchased directly from the Strawberry Mansion Pantry Target Wish List and will ship directly to Dr. McGrorty Crotts or items can be dropped off in a bin located inside Gwynedd's front door at any time.
Shop the Strawberry Market Wish List
Note: Please keep your donations consistent with the brands listed on the Target registry list, so patients can shop the pantry just like they would any other store. This list is ever growing and evolving, so please continue to check back.
Alumnae Day of Service
Each year, Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School students, faculty, and staff celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day by completing a Day of Service. Last year, the Alumnae Association's Ministry & Service Committee included our alumnae community in this tradition.
Alumnae gathered across the country to serve their local communities. Alumnae from the Philadelphia area and their children came to Gwynedd to organize donations and make cards to support the Cradles to Crayons Ready for Learning campaign.
Please join us on Monday, January 16, 2023 to give back to your local community in honor of our Mercy roots for the second annual Alumnae Day of Service. Gather with your fellow alumnae, bring your family and friends, or do one of our service activities yourself.
More information coming in fall 2022.
