A West Chester University student’s Capstone learning project has turned into a Safe Harbor “Dine & Donate” event Friday, April 21, at The Couch Tomato Café in West Chester.

Safe Harbor of Chester County provides shelter and services to individual men and women in Chester County in need of housing.

The fundraiser runs all day from 11 AM to 8:30 PM. Any Safe Harbor supporters ordering from the café who mention the promo code “Safe Harbor” will be included in the final fundraising tally for the day!

Orders can be made in person at the café or called in for delivery or pick up.

The promotion does not apply to the app or online; so those orders will not count toward the total.

Safe Harbor greatly appreciates The Couch Tomato Café’s support of the shelter.

The ”Dine and Donate” event was suggested by West Chester University junior Alexandra (Allie) Amin, who has been a champion for Safe Harbor this school year.

“I am so lucky to be able to help those that are currently experiencing homelessness,” she said.

Amin is helping Safe Harbor through her Capstone learning project.

She has been spending her required 150 service hours writing a grant and creating the Dine and Donate fundraising idea to renovate the shelter’s men’s shower stalls.

She has also volunteered weekly at the shelter to check women in and help with the service dinner.

Her fundraising initiatives are fun ways to promote awareness of Safe Harbor and encourage donations.

The Couch Tomato Café is located at 31 W. Gay Street in West Chester.

Safe Harbor of Chester County was created in 1992 by a task force of local politicians and community members who wanted to help their neighbors who were experiencing homelessness.

Since 1995, Safe Harbor has had a location at 20 N. Matlack Street in West Chester and operates a permanent shelter there for 20 men and 20 women.

The organization provides emergency shelter, food, and access to support services. Safe Harbor is primarily privately funded and was able to continue operating through the entire COVID-19 pandemic.
