City Team provides hot meals, safe shelter, showers, and clean clothing to our cities’ homeless populations throughout the Delaware Valley, as stated on their website; www.cityteam.org/Philadelphia.
They have a lot of volunteers who make their programs successful volunteers like the Human Services club.
The Human Services Club helped City Team with their annual Thanksgiving food box delivery. Club members were among the kind and gracious people who gave up their Saturday morning to deliver Thanksgiving dinners, including turkeys, to families in need throughout the Chester community.
We had a good turnout of Human Service Club members who came to this off-campus volunteer opportunity. We were able to get two cars of people to City Team which allowed for us to take two route rather than one, and actually we did two routes per car. That means that we delivered Thanksgiving dinners to about twenty families in the Chester community. Those families were among the 950 families that were able to have a Thanksgiving dinner through City Team.
We are always looking for new members0 all are welcome! If you would like more information about the Human Services Club, please email either of our Co-Presidents; Danielle (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sam (email@example.com). We would love to have you join us! We have a fun semester planned for the Spring of 2015!
