The Perfect Blend: Coffee, Crafting & Conversation

Nov 3, 2021 10:00 AM to Nov 24, 2021 12:00 PM

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 the DMTF Center for Grieving Families, 7 S. Earl St., 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 drewmichaeltaylor@pa.net.

 

*RSVPs are requested when attending this group so we know how many chairs to set up.  We ask that vaccinated and non-vaccinated participants wear properly worn masks in our facility, unless a medical condition prevents you from doing so.
