Penn House Community Block Party

Hobbs Park

Penn House will be hosting a community block party on Saturday, June 8 from 5pm to 9pm at Hobbs Park on 11th & Delaware Street.

The Penn House Community Block Party will celebrate the clients, volunteers, donors and neighbors who so generously love and support Penn House. The party will include food, music, activities for kids, information about area services, door prizes, and plenty of good company.

Penn House will provide hamburgers, veggie burgers, and beverages and guests are invited to bring their favorite side dish to share. Guests may also bring donations for the food and clothing pantries.

The musically inclined are welcome to bring their instruments and share their talents in an open acoustic jam. Kids will have the opportunity to enjoy sidewalk chalk, water balloons and a craft table. Donations will be accepted for entries into a drawing for door prizes donated by local businesses.

All donations will benefit the upcoming renovation of Penn House which will add new services to their existing programs.

Penn House has been serving Lawrence at 1035 Pennsylvania Street since 1969. Programs include clothing and food pantries, rent and utility assistance, individualized case management and strengths based mentoring. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm.
