Celebrating 30 Years of Giving: UAC’s Annual Thanksgiving Basket Program

Date: 
October 14, 2013

 

UAC is preparing to celebrate its 30th Annual Thanksgiving Basket Program. Each year the Coalition reaches out to the city’s most challenged and vulnerable communities and distributes Thanksgiving baskets to 1,000 needy families; providing Thanksgiving dinners to feed over 6,000 individuals! UAC partners with Brown's ShopRite and their vendors who provide all of the Thanksgiving fixings valued at $25,000 annually. However, UAC must raise $20,000 to purchase the turkeys for the baskets. UAC's efforts to feed those in poverty during this time of year are critical as Philadelphia's poverty rate continues to climb (28%).  Join the Coalition and help fight hunger!

Click here to make a donation to ensure UAC is able to continue in our fight against hunger! A donation of $25 will feed a family of 6, $50 will feed 13 and $100 will feed over 20 individuals! For more information about the program, please contact Felicia Harris at 215-851-1915.
