This year, we are raising money for the Covenant House Pennsylvania, a program that provides homeless, runaway and at-risk youth with a number of services, including a Streets Outreach Program, a Crisis Center, and a transitional living program. The majority of youth who use the program are between the ages of 18 and 21, and many have nowhere else to turn after they age out of the foster care system. The teens then work with a youth advisor and a social worker to come up with a plan to get them in an apartment of their own or in a transitional housing program. In addition to the overhead costs, the money we raise will also go toward SEPTA tokens so they can go to job interviews, pay for college application fees, help them secure proper identification, and take them on field trips. I am asking each person to donate at least a dollar to play quizzo this week, with 100% of the proceeds going to this worthy cause. There is also a Wish List of things the program is looking for for Christmas. For a look at the items on the wish list, click below. If you have anything that you’d like to provide on the wish list, call 215-923-8350.
