The Perfect Blend: Coffee, Crafting & Conversation

May 5, 2021

The Perfect Blend: Coffee, Crafting & Conversation is a unique grief support group for adults who are grieving the death of a loved one (recent loss or years ago). The group meets every Wed. morning from 10 a.m. – noon at our Drew’s Hope Grief Center, 946 Ashton Dr., Shippensburg, PA.  Participants bring their own craft projects (or use our supplies) and while they craft, they talk about grief or everything but grief. It’s a unique way to connect with fellow grievers in a positive, healing way. We are seeking to create relationships that extend beyond the group in order to support and sustain us at difficult times in our grief journey. For more information, contact the DMTF at 717-532-8922 or [email protected]  *Due to Covid restrictions, RSVPs are necessary to attend this group.  Properly worn masks are required when not eating/drinking. We will try to socially distance as much as possible within our facility to maintain safety for group participants.

Healing and Hope Virtual Grief Support Group

The Healing and Hope Virtual Grief Support Group meets the 1st Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. -This education/discussion-based group is for any adults who are grieving the death of a loved one and prefer an online group to in-person meetings.  In order to expand our reach geographically, since we know that many grievers need support but cannot attend groups in Shippensburg, this is our newest group option.  Please email [email protected] and request to be added to the group email list so that we can send you the Zoom meeting link/password prior to each meeting.

GriefKnits grief support group

The GriefKnits Support Group meets the 2nd Thursday of each month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the Drew’s Hope Grief Center, 946 Ashton Dr., Shippensburg, PA.  Knitting has shown positive mental health benefits for grievers. Come and meet others who are grieving the death of a loved one and learn to knit or bring another craft project to work on.  If you’re a griever who already knows how to knit/crochet, bring your current project and gather with us for conversation and fellowship. If you don’t have arts/crafts materials, we have lots of supplies you can use.  We provide the knitting supplies for our new knitters too.  *Due to Covid restrictions, RSVPs are necessary to attend this group (email us at [email protected]).  Properly worn masks are required when not eating/drinking.
