Bowling for Latrines Goes VIRTUAL!

Dear Friends,

This Sunday is the Manayunk Bike Race. We were planning a bowling event in Manayunk…somehow this confluence of factors doesn’t seem the most conducive to attendance so –

Virtual Bowling! (Someone else coined “Pins for Potties” which I thought was quite clever too – so whichever name you prefer).

So please send in your donation! The team heading down to build latrines is growing, and they still need to raise the funds!

Contributions made online go directly to U.S. El Salvador Sister Cities and is tax-deductible – Just Make sure to write – PHILLY BUILDERS in the designation line! (a small % does go to the network for good website, but this makes it super easy to make a donation!)

You can also mail a check, made out to USESSC to:

Bonnie Queen
8 Rex Avenue #4
Philadelphia, PA 19118

And of course, feel free to bowl a game virtually!

Bowling for Latrines!

Sunday, June 3rd
2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Pechin and Hermit Streets, Roxborough, PA

The Interfaith Community Building Group(ICBG) formed in 1997 when volunteers from St. Vincent’s, Mishkan Shalom, and other faiths helped rebuild the burned Rocky Point Missionary Baptist Church in Mississippi. Since then, ICBG has worked on churches, homes and community buildings in El Salvador, Philadelphia and New Orleans.

This July, ICBG members will travel at their own expense to Las Anonas, El Salvador to help build latrines. ICBG must raise $220 per latrine. Your support will help!

Join us for bowling, prizes, refreshments and fun!
