Partner in Mission – Advent HouseMay 09, 2020
Advent House is a non-profit comfort care facility. This means they provide quality end-of-life care for the terminally ill who can no longer live at home. Advent House was envisioned and created by folks from BLC. It resulted in the creation of PEM-EMP*, an umbrella organization for faith-based, non-profits.
BLC contributes $250 a year to this Advent House. Why so little? Advent House is generously supported by other contributions. Fund raisers include an annual auction and dinner dance, gifts of stock, vehicles for charity, a golf tournament, and the Sweet Charity Resale Boutique and Shop on Whitney Rd, Fairport (temporarily closed). When it is safe to resume activities, there are many ways to volunteer at Advent House or in the Boutique. Check it out at http://www.theadventhouse.org/
