SPS/FBR Volunteering at Philabundance – October 4

On October 4th, from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., South Philly Striders and Fishtown Beer Runners we will be returning to Philabundance’s South Philadelphia warehouse to help sort and pack food that will be delivered to thousands of Philadelphians in need.   For the past 30 years, Philaburndance has been addressing hunger in the region through direct service programs and providing social services through food cupboards, emergency kitchens, shelters, daycare and senior centers and beyond. 
Similar to some of our prior appearances, we’ll have a 30 minute check-in and orientation from 12:30-1:00, then we’ll work in the warehouse until about 3:30. The warehouse is located at 3616 S. Galloway St., Philadelphia PA 19148. If you have questions about the event, check the Facebook event page or contact Len DeProspo.
