Prayers, Donations Needed for Norristown Family

Today’s fire was right down the street from GNPAL and the 12-year old hero who lost his life going back into the building to look for his father was at GNPAL just several days ago.  Our deepest sympathies and prayers go out to his family.

GNPAL is seeking donations of both men’s and women’s toiletries for the families affected by the fire this morning.  Items such as soap, washcloths, towels, shampoo, deodorants, lotions, and other personal items may be dropped of at GNPAL at 340 Harding Boulevard from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday – Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday – Sunday.

Thank you for your generous support of the family.
