The McKeown House welcomes people living with serious memory problems to check in to a warm, homelike environment for short stays. With just 10 bedrooms, the House feels like a cozy inn – not an institution – so our loved ones who need memory care can enjoy a beautiful space with professional staff, while their caregivers take time to travel or just recharge. https://www.mckeownfoundation.org/grants-initiatives/mckeown-house/

Join Our "One Degree of Separation" Team

National Brain Tumor Society Fundraiser

KOPSC Member Leigh Davis has taken over as the Captain for the “One Degree of Separation” team for the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) virtual event on October 17th. Our Founding Captain Sue Hayes has dedicated numerous hours over the last several years promoting team spirit. We all know how important donations are for all charities, and KOPSC has supported this very special team since its

inception, as we have lost some of our KOPSC members and family to this insidious disease.

Please join the KOPSC Snow Angels, as we are dedicating the month of September to help raise funds to donate to the NBTS team One Degree of Separation. “NBTS Fall Challenge – Miles for Milestones” is the event this year! The walk/run event in Philadelphia will actually be virtual again on October 17th due tothe pandemic, so it is crucial we build a team and work on collecting donations for the cause. Your support is very much appreciated.
