Community-Run Groups, Shops and Thrift Store
When most people think of senior living, they don’t often think of finding a place to find unique gifts for friends and family members. But at Peter Becker Community, that’s exactly what they get.
With a gift shop, woodworking shop, auxiliary group, and furniture and thrift store in the Philadelphia, PA area, residents and the public alike can be involved through volunteering, shopping, special events, and more.
Read more about our community groups below. Or visit our social media pages, where resident volunteers will provide the latest updates and information about our thrift store and gift shop.
The Auxiliary Group
Our community opened in the summer of 1964. That fall, the Auxiliary was formed.
Created to support the physical and spiritual welfare of residents, our Auxiliary members share their talents and their time with us. You’ll often find Auxiliary members connecting with those inside and outside our community, spending time with residents, volunteering and planning fundraising events, including:
- Our annual partnership drive
- Fashion shows and cookie walks
- Flower and pretzel sales
- And more
Membership in our Auxiliary group is open to residents, their families, employees, volunteers and friends. If you’re interested in volunteering or making a donation, contact Thea Rose at (215) 840-5799.
