Spring of 2019

The Mary Fowler Nest

The American Rescue Workers will be demolishing the previous outbuilding (which previously served as the clothing room) in the rear of 502 Mulberry Street this Spring. The rebuild of an entirely new structure with entirely new purposes will begin this Spring as well. The new structure will be named “The Mary Fowler Nest” and it will be a structure that hosts numerous revenue-building events and activities throughout the year. We hope this stream of revenue will help ensure that the services of the American Rescue Workers remain available in Blair County for years to come. If you are interested in supporting this endeavor, please refer to our Tile Sales tab on this website. Thank you in advance for your support.

2018 Happenings

We have a very difficult time keeping an ongoing calendar on our website since we are such a transitioning operation and are not always sure what the pressing need will be. Donations come and go very sporadically so it is impossible to predict what will be happening when sometimes. We do have some things that are listed yearly, but it takes a bit longer to update the website than we typically have time for when changes occur. We find a daily/weekly update works much better for us, and Facebook allows us to do that quickly throughout the day. Please follow us on our Facebook page at ARW Blair County for the most recent updates and events that are happening.
