Chocolate Cross Day – April 8, 2019

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, an Easter card, and a joyful Christian Easter greeting to every inmate housed at the Lancaster County Prison on Monday, April 8th at 8:00 a.m. We request that every volunteer make a pledged donation of $200.00 per person to attend. The cost includes the opportunity to participate in this unique direct service opportunity, as well as a complimentary reception immediately following at the Eden Resort & Suites featuring keynote speaker Congressman Lloyd Smucker (R-PA 11th District). The luncheon will conclude by 1:00 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/per person), tickets are available for purchase through Eventbrite.
