#RedSparkGives – Why We Loved Giving Back to the Community with MANNA!

Living with a life-threatening illness can take a severe toll on physical, mental, and financial health. Not only can medications and treatments be incredibly expensive, many people forget that illness can come with strict diets the patient must follow. While health insurance can help cover medical costs, it can be challenging for a patient to maintain their new diet. That’s where MANNA comes in. MANNA was founded in 1990 by seven members of the First Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. Their mission was to help comfort people dying of AIDS during a time when the ignorance and the… Read More

#RedSparkGives – Why We Loved Volunteering at Bartram’s Garden

Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” This statement certainly rang true as some of our Red Spark family spent their morning volunteering at the beautiful Bartram’s Garden. Purchased by John Bartram in 1728 and driven by his passion for nature and scientific inquiry, Bartram’s Garden quickly became the most-varied collection of North American plants in the world. In fact, his innovative collection became so popular that even British patrons would seek out his plants, leading King George III to name him the “Royal Botanist” in 1765. Today,… Read More
