Paws@Play Dog Daycare
Yes, I am open! Yes, I am accepting new dogs! Having 25+ years’ experience (15 years In the Main Line and winner of “Best of Main Line” for 9 years.in a row), I know I can give your pup the best care in the area. Paws@Play is small which gives me the chance to know the dogs individually and recognize any signs of change in behavior and alerting the parents if further care is necessary. No cages used – dogs run free playing and having fun all day mainly in the 1800 sq. ft. playroom. Nervous dogs are kept in a playroom with the very small dogs and will move to the bigger room only when they feel confident enough.

2nd Family Main Line is an award winning home health care business, serving senior citizens & their families on the Main Line, offering non-medical support for every day life. By incorporating RN care coordination, a technology platform designed for families and elite caregivers, we can ensure your family members are receiving the best care possible.
2nd Family Co-Owner and Director of Nursing, Emily Glowacki, wanted to do something for the healthcare workers battling Covid on the frontlines. As a registered nurse with Jefferson and Penn Health systems, she saw the emotional and physical toll the pandemic was taking on her friends, former colleagues and co-workers as they were treating critically ill patients.
On April 17th, Emily launched her Feed The Frontlines with 2nd Family initiative. Friends, family and followers of 2nd Family jumped right in with nominations of hard-working healthcare workers at local hospitals as well as monetary donations to support the cause. 2nd Family worked with local restaurants, including Desert Rose and Bittersweet Kitchen (both in Media) as well as Ripplewood Whiskey & Craft (In Ardmore) to deliver delicious meals to the nominees and their floors. Many floors are converted Covid-19 units due to the influx of positive patients.
Since the April 17th launch, 2nd Family has raised nearly $5000, visited 10 different local hospitals (HUP, Jeff, Temple, Presby, Riddle, Chester County Hospital, Virtua in Voorhees, Crozer-Chester, Bryn Mawr & Lankenau Hospitals), 17 different floors and fed hundreds of local healthcare workers.
Nominations and donations to the GoFundMe are still being accepted. To donate: email Emily Glowacki at email@example.com

House Cup Coffee Roasters, based in Havertown, Delaware County, continues to roast the finest quality, organic, fresh coffees for our community during this challenging time. Orders may be placed online and coffee may be delivered for free to Haverford Township and surrounding communities – and shipping available anywhere. Curbside pickup may also be arranged at the roasthouse in Havertown.
Two other ways Main Line residents can help – purchase a gift card online for a health care worker, first responder or teacher to show their support. Or participate in our Suspended Coffee program where at 1/2 price, individuals may purchase a bag (or more) that is donated to a local food bank or hospital department. Recently, House Cup donated bags of Kcups to the Lankenau Hospital Respiratory Department when they mentioned online they were out of coffee one night. Residents rallied around this and helped us put together coffee packages for them, foodbanks and a firehouse, to keep them caffeinated. Coffee isn’t essential. But they are. housecupcoffee.com
