Shout out to SAWA!!

Shout out to SAWA!!

The Women’s Auxiliary was formed in 1947, with the objective to “Maintain an organized center for intellectual, moral, and social development among its members and to extend the interests of the St. Anthony’s Lodge.”

The lovely ladies with St. Anthony’s Women’s Auxiliary (SAWA) have voted to make It Takes A Village a yearly beneficiary of their support!!! We are so humbled and touched to have been granted this generous show of support for our programs and mission!


The ladies of SAWA meet monthly and sponsor many community events. Their 2014-2015 sponsorships include The Michael Bartone Memorial Fund, Teri’s Run, Bats for Matt, Strikeouts for Katie and the St. Joseph Parish Festival.  Donations were given to The Lord’s Pantry, St. Joseph Giving Tree, Helping Hands of Beaver Creek Elementary School, CMMD, the STA Banquet Hall and Bridge of Hope of Lancaster and Chester Counties.  In addition, S.A.W.A. offers scholarships to local high school students, runs bi-annual designer bag Bingo, holds a fabulous annual craft show around the holidays and runs a Quarter Raffle event that’s not to be missed!

We here at the Village are honored to have their support and look forward to partnering with the wonderful ladies of SAWA in the near future!
