JeffHEALTH (Helping East Africa Link to Health) is having a shoe drive throughout the month of May! Shoes will be collected and brought to Rwanda to be given to the villages that JeffHEALTH serves. Donation bins are located in JAH Lobby, College 2nd Floor Lobby, Hamilton 2nd Floor, and Jefferson Pediatrics. New and used shoes are accepted but children's shoes are preferred! Bins will be collected on June 4th. 

JeffHEALTH is a student run global health exchange organization that sends students to Rwanda each year to educate community health workers in rural villages. JeffHEALTH also hosts Rwandan medical students in Philadelphia, where they come to rotate at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. We will be collecting donations and shoes at the entrance to benefit the projects in Rwanda.

The Philadelphia Gay Men's Chorus is excited to be welcoming all LGBTQ students and their ALLY friends from all over the Philadelphia region to our presentation of Modern Families!

Celebrate LGBT families in all their various forms. The first half will feature “Alexander’s House,” a one-act choral staged musical about a man who dies and leaves his summer home to his estranged son instead of his partner. It is a story about bringing people together from separate worlds and about the family of friends we create. The original music and lyrics are by Michael Shaieb, the composer and lyricist of Through a Glass Darkly. Based on the book by Michael Schaieb and Brent Lord.

The PGMC will present Modern Families
