On Sunday, November 11, 2018, the Abington Ambler Alumni Chapter hosted its St. Jude Sunday of Hope event at Canaan Baptist Church in Germantown.Brother Richard Snow delivered an inspirational message and asked all Canaan members to support their national initiative.

Thanks to the support of Dr. Rev. Darrel Brennan and his congregation, the Abington Ambler Alumni Chapter was able to raise $5,000 for the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

This great achievement will provide day to day necessities for 40 patient families, such as shampoos, razors, deodorant, toothbrushes and lotion free of charge; the cost of four days of oxygen for a St. Jude patient and three hours of patient physical therapy, because children with life-threatening diseases like cancer and sickle cell may develop cognitive, developmental or physical impairments as a result of their illnesses and their treatments.
