Celebrating 40 Years of Service!

The Patrician Society provides help for elderly people on fixed incomes, homeless persons, parents who receive public assistance while caring for children, residents of boarding homes, recently unemployed and underemployed family breadwinners and others in need. We have been serving the economically marginalized community in the greater Norristown since 1981.

The food cupboard is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 1:00pm – 3:00pm.

The Patrician Society celebrates its 40th Anniversary on November 17!

In lieu of a celebratory gathering (due to Covid-19 restrictions), our Board of Directors is marking the occasion with the printing of a Patrician Society History Book/Cookbook. We are offering the opportunity to purchase the book (for – appropriately – $40.00!) before supplies run out.

Please contact us or call 610-272-6316 for more information. If you would like to purchase a book now, you can do so by filling out our donation form. Please write BOOK in the comment field.

We are very grateful for all of the support that we have enjoyed over the past four decades!
