What did The Merion Square Scout House need?

JIM helped The Merion Square Scout House appeal to individual donors with a well-written and persuasive letter template that they can easily modify for specific recipients.

Why is this project important?

For us this is survical. Our annual appeal is the sole basis of getting the funds needed to keep the property kept up and safe for the kids who use it.

This project will save us $2,140, allowing us to stay open

I have a BA in communications and want to use the skills I acquired from 40 years of work in public relations, marketing, graphic design, printing, and mailing.

After working as a newspaper reporter, I did public relations in the health care industry, and for Catholic Charities. I then served as Director of News Information for the Newark Archdiocese, where my main function was dealing with the press and sending out press releases.

Eventually, I started my own business and operated it for 30 years, overseeing everything including copywriting, design, printing, and mailing.

About The Merion Square Scout House

The Merion Square Scout house is a Class 1 historic building in the Gladwyne Historic District. The iconic structure was originally built in 1884 as a mission chapel for Bryn Mawr Baptist Church. In 1961, after being shuttered for several years, through an anonymous donation it was purchased to promote scouting and provide a meeting place for scouts in the Local area.
