Chocolate Cross Day

Chocolate Cross Day

Justice & Mercy cordially invites you to its annual Chocolate Cross Day! Be a part of this exclusive, spiritually transformative event in which a group of 25 committed volunteers distribute chocolate crosses and an Easter card to every inmate housed at the Lancaster County Prison on Tuesday, March 27th at 8 a.m. We request that every volunteer make a pledged donation of $200.00 per person to attend. This sum includes access to the prison inmates, as well as a hosted luncheon immediately following at the Eden Resort & Suites where Lancaster County Prison Warden Cheryl Steberger is slated as a keynote guest speaker. The luncheon will conclude by 1 p.m. Tickets to the luncheon are open to the general public.

As a registered 501(c)(3) tax-deductible organization, a variety of sole and corporate sponsorship opportunities are available.

To register as a volunteer or sign-up for the luncheon ($100.00 per person), tickets are available for purchase through Eventbrite.

To request more information, please contact Elizabeth Reidenbach at (717) 368-2025 or

We look forward to celebrating the glory of the Easter season with you all!
