The menu’s numerous sandwiches arrive on bagels, inside wraps, or between the UN sanctioned borders of eight different types of bread with classic fixings including the chicken salad layered in lettuce and tomato, served with a pickle and choice of side. The turkey club fills its bready pouch with turkey, american cheese, and bacon, and the grilled-chicken pesto features grilled chicken breast loaded with fresh mozzarella, roasted red pepper, and pesto. A rotating schedule of soups accompanies sandwiches, delivering scintillating scents from draughts such as Maryland crab and italian wedding.

During its fifth season, Schmata Productions will showcase a May performance of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Jr., with a cast and crew of 4th– through 12th-grade students. Participants in the musical-theater program fully engage in the theatrical process, from audition through performance, and eventually competition.

The organization relies upon donations to fund student scholarships that cover the costs of production, including technical supplies and scripts.
When Cindy Kerr's 12-year-old son, Ryan, was diagnosed with cancer in 2002, she began making pillowcases for him to brighten his hospital room and his spirits. He was so cheered by the gift that she started creating pillowcases for other children staying in the oncology unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Since its early days, Cindy Kerr's pillowcase project has grown into ConKerr Cancer, with a network of thousands of volunteers who make the pillowcases spread across North America and South Africa. ConKerr Cancer has created and delivered more than 600,000 pillowcases to children across the United States, Canada, South Africa and Great Britain in the past five years.
