More Ways to Get Involved...

Looking for a great project with a big impact?  
You can help by collecting items, making birthday cards, or raising money to help fund a gig.  Items collected go directly to people in our community and other area agencies who need them.  

Items accepted
* Toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, deodorant)
* Paper goods (toilet paper, paper towels)
* Foil, plastic wrap, dish soap, detergent, trash bags
* Adult diapers
* Cans of tuna

Collecting not for you?  Grab a group of people to help send birthday cards to our recipients.  This simple act of kindness will let them know that we are thinking of them on their special day.  We will assign you a month's worth of cards (average number per month is around 400 cards).  

You bring the awesome volunteers and we bring the cards, envelopes, address labels, and stamps.  Cards will be co-branded with your name or group's logo.

Have a chair, dresser, and/or mattress & box spring you would like to donate?

Gentleman spends his days caring for his home bound mother in northeast Philadelphia.  They are desperately in need of a twin size mattress and box spring, as their dire circumstances make it impossible for them to afford a set on their own.

We also have a senior in South Philly who needs a dresser in which to put her clothes and a comfy, sturdy chair to sit in.  The dresser should be sturdy with drawers that are easy to manage.  If you have an item that you would like to donate, please contact us at

“Thank you for making my life much easier to cope with and all the stuff I go through everyday.”
