The Perfect Blend: Coffee, Crafting & Conversation

July 21, 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]  *RSVPs are requested when attending this group so we know how many chairs to set up.  We ask that non-vaccinated participants continue to wear properly worn masks in our facility.
