We're a group of Philadelphia locals who enjoy giving back to the communities we live in. We volunteer for various non-profit causes that cover a wide range of needs from park cleanups, to volunteering at local animal shelters, food banks, children and senior causes, fundraising team walks/runs, etc. Invite your friends, this is a fun group and we get to do some good for our communities along the way!
*Please note that almost all organizations we work with require us to sign up our group prior to the event and provide the number of attendees. The organizations count on everyone to show and plan for our group accordingly. Due to this if you do not show for 2 or more Meetups you've sign up for (and do not message) you'll be removed from the group.
Join us Saturday June 1st for a fun volunteer event at Cradles to Crayons in their Giving Factory!
A volunteer shift in The Giving Factory Warehouse involves hands-on processing of donated goods that flow in on a regular basis. We'll be inspecting, sorting, and packaging donations that will be distributed to local children in need in the Philadelphia area.
Cradles to Crayons provides children from birth through age 12, living in homeless or low-income situations, with the essential items they need to thrive – at home, at school and at play. They supply these items free of charge by engaging and connecting communities that have, with communities that need. You can learn more here about Cradles to Crayons here: https://www.cradlestocrayons.org
All ages 5 and up welcome! Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
