Ignite the Flyer spirit in the Philadelphia community!

Our Philadelphia Alumni Community annual Christmas off Campus service event will be held at the Ruth Williams House with Project Home this year. Ruth Williams House provides 88 units of affordable housing to men and women who are homeless, formerly homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

We will host a holiday lunch celebration for the residents, serving pasta and meatballs, salad, and breadsticks. Volunteers can bring cookies and bags of candy for dessert. Goodie bags will be made for residents to take away after the event.

After lunch, volunteers will play bingo with the residents where small gifts will be given as prizes.

You can donate gifts, food and/or supplies for the party by contacting Kris McNicholas '86 at kmcnicholas64@hotmail.com. Questions can also be directed to Kris.
