Thank you Milo and Tanya!

Jul 13, 2018

We have to give a huge shout out to our newest friends, Milo and Tanya Dyke! Milo and Tanya live close to our Rittenhouse meal site and were looking for ways to give back to the community. Milo was especially interested in helping out. They reached out a couple of months ago asking how they could help out and get involved. At that time, we were having some behavioral issues with some regular guests. Tanya and I brainstormed and thought of a Welcome Poaster with some basic rules. They took the idea and put the Dyle spin on it! The end result has been such a wonderful addition to our meal site! Thank you Milo and Tanya for taking the time out to make our meals a little bit brighter!

PHL17 - IN FOCUS: Tailgates Tackle Hunger, Project Home, and The Sunday Love Project

May 06, 2018

Among the nonprofits doing what they can to help tackle the issue is “Tailgates Tackle Hunger.” They are present at professional league games at the Phillies and Eagles in the parking lots during tailgating. And, their mission is a simple one but has a profound impact – raising awareness about repurposing food to feed those who don’t have enough to eat. Joining Jennifer from the organization is Kerri Marin, it’s executive director and Therese Williams, founder of “Tailgates Tackle Hunger.” That organization is also extending its reach to help those dealing with homelessness, specifically from Project Home in Philadelphia. Carol Thomas, director of homeless services for Project Home and Chef Andy Marin from Community College of Philadelphia talk about how they are working together to also to help tackle the issue. And, wrapping up the show with Jennifer is the Margaux Murphy, founder of the Sunday Love Project who started buying meals for the homeless four years ago and now serves home-cooked lunches to more than two-hundred people each Sunday. What she’s doing now and how she’s seeking to get more people involved - is shared on “In Focus.” “In Focus” is broadcast Saturdays at 6:30 AM on PHL17.

Carrying everything you own and keeping it safe is a constant worry for those living on the streets. This spring, we'd like to lighten the load and show that we have their backs with our Sunday Love Project Spring Backpack Drive from May 1-26, 2017.

But we need your support to make this a success--you can help us reach our goal to collect 200 new backpacks for those living on the streets in our city by purchasing one today.

We’ve researched the best packs for comfort and safety, and we're asking our friends to support our drive by purchasing a Venture Pal Lightweight Durable Backpack on Amazon for just $20.99.  

Backpacks can be mailed or dropped off by May 26th to the Sunday Love Project Headquarters.

So, show some love! Help us collect 200 backpacks during the month of May and make a direct difference in the loves of our city's homeless.
