Our signature fundraiser has been re-imagined as a virtual event: Celebrate the Center at Home!

You’re invited to celebrate and support the Community Center by ordering a family style dinner for four or date night for two to enjoy at home. Two menus, prepared by Aspinwall Everyday Gourmet, are available for curbside pickup at the Center on October 2 and 3. In addition to a delicious meal, we’ll also send you home with a special treat, some reminders about what makes the Community Center so special, and how your contribution is making a difference when we need it most.

Our Arts & Enrichment Program is offered at the Center each day after school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday following the FCASD calendar. It’s a two hour program for Kindergarten through 5th grade students. The program is a unique combination of a relaxed atmosphere and enriching activities that are sure to inspire and complement individual interests with time in our Maker Studio, gymnasium, and outside. Space is limited due to social distancing, but we do still have some spots available.

From the Fox Chapel Area High School Counseling Department:

This week’s practice is from Nedra Glover Tawwab and focuses on letting go of things that are unhelpful, unhealthy, or do no bring happiness. Whenever you are feeling overwhelmed or upset, use the following three step practice to process your feelings. 

  1. Feel your feelings without trying to avoid them. Cry. Be angry. Allow yourself to be sad. It’s all part of the process.
  2. Reconfigure who you are. How has the experience or relationship changed you?
  3. Forgive yourself by acknowledging your humanness. You are not perfect. Making mistakes is part of the learning process. Don’t beat yourself up for what you allowed.

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.”  – Eckhart Tolle
