The Wawa Foundation champions important causes with a particular focus on health, hunger, and heroes. Just after the Independence Day holiday, YouthBuild Philly received a grant from The Wawa Foundation help address our students’ nutritional needs. This grant will be applied toward stocking our pantries and refrigerator in our student lounge so that students will have access to fresh food during the school day.
The White and Richardson Trust, through the Central Philadelphia Monthly Meeting of Friends, also selected YouthBuild Philly’s Student Support Fund as a grant recipient for May 2016. This funding will be used to provide meals and snacks for students, as well as address housing emergencies through need-based grants.
If you would like to donate to the YouthBuild Philly Student Support Fund, you may do so through Network for Good.
