The Saturday for Seniors Program has provided a meal to 70-80 low income and lonely seniors for more than 36 years. Week in and week out we serve a noon time hot meal and also send each senior home with a second meal consisting of a can of soup, a piece of fruit and a snack. Without this program some seniors would go hungry every weekend when the city senior centers are closed.
Our program relies on donations and volunteers. Normally we receive 3,000 cans of soup donations each November - but sadly this year we only received 300.
On GIVING TUESDAY, your donation of $5.00 will allow us to purchase 24 cans of soup at our wholesale rate. For $10.00 you can make sure one senior will have soup for an entire year. Won't you help us make sure Philadelphia seniors do not go hungry? Our goal is to raise $600.
You can donate using PayPal or a credit card (please visit http://www.oldpine.org/community-and-... to click on the PayPal link) or you can mail your check payable to "Old Pine Street Church" to 412 Pine Street. Philadelphia PA 19106.
