The Patrician Society is a nonsectarian organization designed to meet the basic human needs of economically disadvantaged adults, children and families in their community of Norristown, PA. Since 1981, they have been providing grocery baskets for eligible households on a monthly basis by way of their emergency food cupboard. They have assisted qualified families with funding for utilities, rent, mortgage and uninsured medical expenses. They also offer a summer day camp with six one-week sessions for boys and girls ages 5-11. In 2009, nearly 1,300 different verifiably needy families received grocery baskets and various other essentials from the Patrician Society. The Legacy Foundation grant provided emergency cupboard necessities for children, such as diapers, formula, baby wipes, baby food, and many other items needed on a daily basis.
