Holiday Craft Show at Freedom Village at Brandywine

All Proceeds Benefit LaMancha Animal Rescue

Holiday Craft Show at Freedom Village at Brandywine All Proceeds Benefit LaMancha Animal Rescue Coatesville, PA – November 5, 2015 Open to the public, Freedom Village at Brandywine will host a Holiday Craft Show on Saturday, December 5, 2015 from 10am to 4pm in their auditorium. All proceeds will benefit LaMancha Animal Rescue. The auditorium will be filled with tables of handmade and handcrafted items made by volunteers of nearby LaMancha Animal Rescue, which partners with Freedom Village to bring their resident dogs into several units at the retirement community. Included in the offerings are hand knit and crocheted items, horseshoe metal art (wine racks, Christmas décor, wooden serving trays to name a few), handstitched blankets, all sorts of dog and cat items, both for pets and owners alike, handmade jewelry, tote bags, gift baskets, custom made tapestry accent pillows, birdfeeders, etc. Over 60 items made by many different artisans will be available at suggested donation amounts. There will also be a bake sale table full of home baked goodies to kick up your energy level while you are shopping. LaMancha began a pet therapy partnership with Freedom Village Retirement Community in March of 2015. At their request, LaMancha established a program to bring resident dogs into the dementia unit twice weekly. The program quickly became an overwhelming success as the dogs generally visit several units in their community, including Memory Care, which has approximately 20 residents, the Skilled and Rehab Units, which have approximately 35 residents and Assisted Living, where they usually visit around 15 residents. The numbers can be higher or lower depending on the day. Freedom Village management reports “Not only do the residents LOVE the dogs visiting, but the families love to see these programs in place, as well.” Event Details Who: LaMancha Animal Rescue Community What: Holiday Fundraiser Where: Auditorium at Freedom Village Retirement Community, 15 Freedom Boulevard, Coatesville, PA When: Saturday, December 5, 2015 from 10am to 4pm Media For more information, the media can contact the event organizer direct at General Public Holiday Shoppers, Handcrafters and Animal Lovers: This event is open to the public.
