House & Room Sponsorship

Items/rooms/projects needed to be sponsored...so many great options!

Giving the Cost of item(s) will be more efficient than actual items in most cases, so we can purchase in bulk if applicable and as needed. If you desire to make a direct purchase, call first, as that item may have already been sponsored or purchased. You can reach Angelique at 610-428-5721 for more information.
