COVID-19 COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

Local healthcare staff, individuals and families have been struggling and we want to help! 


Pillars of Light and Love is collecting donations via the links below to assist the community in various ways through our newly established Covid-19 Community Assistance Program.


We are collecting donations to be used to buy and deliver meals to overwhelmed staff with COVID-19 patients at local Long Term Care Facilities. We have appointed a Committee to identify facilities, as well as restaurants who will partner with us to deliver these meals. Some facilities are also requesting cards of encouragement to be sent to the patients and staff. You may send to any Long term care facility in your area and address cards to Residents or Staff. Here are some suggestions:


Parkhouse Nursing Center
Attn: Sally Hawk-Jones

SE Veterans Center

In addition, donations will be used for those individuals and households in communities surrounding our location in Trappe, Pennsylvania who have specific needs during this time.  In order to apply for assistance, please review eligibility requirements, and complete an application online HERE or call 484-854-1162. You may also email us at Staff@PillarsOfLightAndLove.org


Stress is at an all time high! More than ever we need to continue our work to prevent suicide, as well as drug and alcohol use. Funds raised will also be used to provide Stress Management Services, EMDR Therapy and Talk Therapy to those without insurance, as well as for online support groups facilitated by licensed and insured Therapists. 


Any excess funds raised will be used to assist us in launching our Empowering U Youth Program for Schools for the 2020-21 school year, as well as for youth empowerment workshops to be scheduled virtually until in-person activities are permitted. 


The program for meal assistance for staff at long term care facilities will continue through June 30, 2020 with the ability of us to extend, if necessary, and approved by our Board of Directors.


The Community Assistance Program for households will continue until September 30, 2020 and will also be extended if approved by our Board of Directors. 


Because we are a 501(c)3 approved Charity, your donations are tax deductible. Please check with your accountant when you receive your donation acknowledgement email.

Our Story

Pillars of Light and Love is a non-profit located just outside Collegeville Pennsylvania in the borough of Trappe. Launched in 2015 by local well-known REALTOR, Kathy Opperman- who is also a licensed Registered Nurse and Certified Life Coach- the main focus of the non-profit is Stress and Life Management for ages 5 to adult. Our goal is to teach children, teens and adults to reduce stress, have strong self-esteem, overcome anxiety and depression and bullying and build confidence to achieve better coping techniques, positive communication skills, and healthy relationships.  When people are able to handle the stuff of life, we believe it will help to avoid addiction, self-harm, anxiety, overwhelming sadness and depression. 

We offer over a dozen free ongoing support groups plus workshops for ages 5 to adult,  as well as youth empowerment programs like Julia's Joy Teen & Tween programs, Community Kindness Projects, Tom's Warriors, Andy's Angels and and annual Julia's Joy Voice Idol Competition. Feel free to explore our site for details on each tab of our site. 

Donations raised for Pillars of Light and Love fund many workshops and are used to provide discounted or free services (based on availability), at the Empowering U Center, such as Life Coaching, Marriage Counseling, Family Therapy, Teen Talk Therapy and Stress and Anxiety Management, EMDR Therapy, Biodfeedback (a holistic alternative for anxiety and depression), as well as other Anxiety and Stress Relief services for those with serious illnesses, caregivers of special needs children and adults, as well as Disabled Veterans. These services are also available to the general public. See Practitioners and their services HERE. 

CALL 484-854-1162 or email staff@pillarsoflightandlove.org for an application. 


Pillars of Light and Love does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, familial status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of our activities or operations.
