Philadelphia REIA's Holiday Food Drive & Volunteering @ a Homeless Shelter

Celebrating the holidays when there are no resources to make them special is hard, but you can help hundreds of families and individuals in Philadelphia share in a traditional Thanksgiving meal.  There are two ways you can help:

1) Make An Online Donation.
100% of the donations will be spent 
towards food for the turkey drive.  If you don't have the time to come out and volunteer, please donate!  The more money we put together, the more families we feed.  Every penny counts!

*** If you have suggestions on where we can stretch our dollars with food purchases, please don't hesitate to share them with us!  Thank you in advance ***

CLICK HERE TO DONATE NOW!


2) Volunteer to Help put together Food Baskets
For those that prefer getting involved, we will be getting together on November 23rd to buy food, put together food baskets and dropping them off at local shelters and homes.

3) Volunteer to Help at a Shelter 
For those that prefer getting even more involved, we will be hitting up a homeless shelter to serve others for an evening.  This will be going down on Saturday November 30th.

Together we can make sure that everyone in our community has a reason to be grateful this holiday!

    Nick, I think this is awesome what you are doing!!

    Last Thanksgiving I attempted to feed 1000 homeless veterans in Wilmington, DE.

    I am trying to help get veterans to home ownership.

    Could you help me promote something?

    I entered a competition to win $10,000 and I would use the winnings to develop a veteran path to home ownership program. Would you be able to take 1 minute to help me out? First, all you have to do is "Like" this page www.facebook.com/glazer.kennedy and then vote for my entry "Veterans to Home Ownership". Any chance you would vote for me? AND it would be super awesome if you could pass this along to your network. Thanks Nick!!
