We here at P4P need to acknowledge the passing of our dear friend and coworker Dick Swisher.
While the sewing machine program was a P4P initiative, it was Dick Swisher who made it successful. In the eleven years we have been shipping sewing machines, it was Dick who collected, repaired and prepared close to one thousand sewing machines for shipment overseas. Dick’s work with P4P touched lives of ordinary people from Albania to Yemen, sixteen countries in total.
He was a humble man from Granite Station Road in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, who reached out to help the unfortunate worldwide. We lost a hero, a friend, someone totally irreplaceable. We need to celebrate his lifetime of accomplishments while we mourn his loss.
