DITTY BAGS — 2018!
Every year, between Thanksgiving and Christmas, Seamen’s Church Institute distributes thousands of “ditty bags” to seafarers in our Delaware River ports.
Please help us say “Thank You” to officers and crew of cargo ships who bring us so much, from electronics to bananas and everything in between. They will be far from home during the holidays, and for many this is the only gift they will receive
Ditty bag items can be mailed or delivered to Seamen’s Church Institute, 1113 Admiral Peary Way, 2nd floor, Philadelphia, PA 19112. We will be packing ditty bags on November 15 and would also appreciate anyone who can volunteer to help! For more information, please call Helene Pierson at (215) 940-9900.
