Charity & Foundations
At Iron Hill we strive to create a feeling of warmth and care for each guest, which extends beyond the walls of our restaurants into the community. Each Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant participates locally in civic and community service, such as sponsoring Muscular Dystrophy Lock-Ups, hosting an annual brewery festival to benefit the Media Youth Center, participating in events to benefit a local chapter of Habitat for Humanity and brewing signature beer with the Eagles’ Jon Runyan, with the proceeds going to Cystic Fibrosis.
The Triple Chocolate Hill is an impressive confection of moist double fudge brownies sitting on a warm bed of peanut butter-caramel sauce, covered in chocolate, accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice cream and topped with whipped cream.
.75 of each Chocolate Hill sold is donated to the CureSearch for Children's Cancer; and another .75 is donated to the Ardmore Food Pantry, specifically chosen by the staff at Iron Hill Ardmore.
CureSearch for Children's Cancer is a national non-profit foundation whose mission is to fund and support targeted and innovative children’s cancer research with measurable results, and be the authoritative source of information and resources for all those affected by children’s cancer. CureSearch accelerates the cure by driving innovation, eliminating research barriers and solving the field's most challenging problems; annually funding clinical trials and scientific research questions that challenge the status quo to push the field closer to a cure. Ultimately, CureSearch is working to change the odds for those children most at risk. www.curesearch.org
Ardmore Food Pantry Hunger is a real but often hidden problem in our community. Around the Delaware Valley more and more people are seeking help from food banks, shelters and emergency kitchens due to loss of employment, reduction in work hours, rising food costs and/or elimination of benefits.
For the past several years, St. Mary’s had a small emergency food pantry that operated out of the parish office. In 2009 the Food Pantry moved to a dedicated space in the parish hall and expanded its services, which are staffed by parish and community volunteers. Working with area community groups and congregations of all faiths is vital to the Food Pantry’s success. Volunteers are needed to help staff the Food Pantry, collect food items, donate to the Spare Change-Spare Hunger fund, and to organizing events benefitting the Food Pantry.
