Your Tweets and Used Phones Support the LSH Bilingual Domestic Violence Program! LSH is partnering with The Philadelphia Eagles and urging you to send messages of hope and inspiration for those affected by domestic violence, using the hashtag #EaglesVZWHope. For every hashtag tweeted, Verizon Wireless will donate $1 to the Pass Along Hope campaign, which provides funding to the LSH program to end domestic violence. The campaign is part of the Verizon Wireless HopeLine program that connects victims and survivors of domestic violence to the vital resources they need. You can also donate your no-longer-used cell phones and accessories, which Verizon refurbishes and gives to domestic violence organizations like LSH, helping victims of abuse to feel safer and less isolated. We are proud to partner with the Philadelphia Eagles to pass along hope, and hope you will, too!

Announcing the Luthy Awards! Meet the first winner of LSH's Luthy Awards, in which we recognize a staff member who has made a remarkable impact on a client, or multiple clients. Ms. Hertha Harris has been an employee of Lutheran Settlement House since 2012. Over these 2 years she has shown incredible commitment to her role as cook in the kitchen of Jane Addams Place shelter. During a heavy storm this winter she was dedicated enough to march through the snow to get to work so our Jane Addams residents could still get a hot meal. For her dedication to our Jane Addams Place families, she became the first staff member to receive a Luthy Award. Thank you for all your work, Ms. H!!

Comcast Newsmakers interview Lutheran Settlement House's Executive Director Kelly Davis! They discuss LSH's ongoing work and our annual fundraising event Women of Courage in which we celebrate the courageous spirit of remarkable women who have overcome obstacles and continue to advocate for the neediest in our community.

LSH was thankful to have some All Star Santas deliver presents to the kids at our Jane Addams Place shelter. The toy drive was organized by Nicole Warnecke of the Flyers Wives. Nicole collected about seventy presents donated by the wives and girlfriends of Flyers players. The children of Jane Addams Place were surprised and delighted to receive this special delivery of gifts from Nicole and fan favorites, Zac Rinaldo and Jakub Voracek, of the Philadelphia Flyers. The generosity of the Flyers and their loved ones brought a very Merry Christmas to our LSH family!
