Positive Vibes

Our team spent a morning at Pete’s Produce Farm in West Chester to harvest collards, beets, green beans, kale, and mustard greens for the Chester County Food Bank.  We learned what goes into providing fresh produce to families in the area, and we had a ton of fun getting our hands dirty.  If you’d like to volunteer to support the Chester County Food Bank, check out the link to their volunteer calendar.

Our new neighbor

This month, a fantastic neighbor moved into the upstairs suite of our building at 940 E Boot Rd.  Our new neighbor is the non-profit organization, “A Path to Hope.” 

A Path to Hope helps local families learn about and gain access to the appropriate mental health resources in the community.  The organization strives to guide parents through the complicated mental healthcare puzzle with education, awareness, and connection, while also challenging the broader community to expand and prioritize mental health resources for children and teens.  Let us know if you’re interested in learning more, and we’d be happy to help you connect with the organization.    


The Gay Street Open Air-Marketplace is back again this summer with expanded outdoor dining allowing us to visit our favorite locations in downtown West Chester, enjoy the weather, reconnect with friends and family, and support local businesses.  Hopefully we’ll see you out there! 


While you may see some headlines about US household debt at record highs, these statistics compiled by Ben Carlson suggest that US Household balance sheets looks better than ever.  For a different perspective, check out this “A Wealth of Common Sense” blog for some optimistic economics.
