This Saturday, August 20, the Kindness Project will open its new expansion, the Pocono Region’s Kindness Cottage in Stroudsburg.
The grand opening of the Kindness Projects’ second location will take place this Saturday, August 20, and is open to the public. The new Pocono Region’s Kindness Cottage is located at Christian Life Assembly Church in Stroudsburg. Doors will be open from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will commence promptly at 1:30. It will be followed by an afternoon filled with food, fun, tours of the Kindness Cottage, raffle prizes, and more. The Kindness Project will also run a Baby Shower Drive during the event. Donations of any new baby-related hygiene items, diapers, baby wipes, formula, burp cloths, teethers, baby toys, etc., are encouraged and would be a huge help for the Kindness Project to stock up for all babies coming into care.
How The Kindness Project Started
What began as a small project out of founder Jenae Holtzhafer’s home in 2018 has quickly grown to serve over 1,100 children across 21 counties in central and eastern PA, including over 100 children from the Pocono region. The Kindness Project provides support to foster families in the area by supplying clothing, furniture, and other essential items, free of charge, to children in foster care. In the spring of 2022, the Regional Leader of Pocono Location, Liz Johnson, expressed interest in a second location to provide more convenience and support to foster families in northeast PA. Supporting the idea, Christian Life Assembly offered The Kindness Cottage for use. Enabling even more families across the Northeastern areas of PA quick access to free essential items and services as the need to support foster families continues to grow. The mission of The Kindness Project is to provide a brighter future for children in foster care by offering free essential resources and enrichment opportunities.
