Thank you to Skyla Edwards, Courtley Mckenna, Daniel Murnane and Randy Bostick for the photos below! Please check out One Step Away's page and the full event!
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.

Distributing Dignity's mission is to distribute new bras, pads, and tampons, enhancing the dignity of women in need.
Socks are the #1 most requested clothing item at homelss shelters. This fact is the driving force behind Bombas. Bombas exists to help solve this problem, to support the homeless community, and to bring awareness to an under-publicized problem in the United States.
For every pair of Bombas socks purchased, one pair is donated. We are thrilled to kickoff an ongoing partnership with Bombas and encourage you to support them and their mission. Bombas works with more than 600 giving partners across the US to get socks on the feet of those who need them the most.
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.
Peapod, the country’s first and leading online grocer, has graciously gifted $5,000 in cash and a $5,000 food contribution gift certificate. We are incredibly grateful!
Peapod has long believed that its work extends past delivering groceries to become an integral part of the communities it serves.
