About ACHIEVEability

Backpack Donation Drive

Thanks to the generous support of Cradles to Crayons and organizations such as Urban Outfitters, PECO, Bank of America, Morgan Leiws and Greenphire, the 2015 Backpack Donation Drive was a huge success.


Marking our best year yet, more than 1,100 backpacks and school supplies were donated to ACHIEVEability in support of this drive. These donations support the school age children in our Family Self-Sufficiency Program and residents in our local West Philadelphia community. The value of these items total more than $25,000.


Other donors include DeVry University, Grant Thornton, Hamilton Lane, Intact Vascular, Neuronetics, Tau Gamma Delta Sorority, Towers Watson and many other individual donors. Because of our donors, we are able to make a positive impact on the families we serve.


At ACHIEVEability, we work hard every day to serve the Haddington and Cobbs Creek communities and to support the single parent families on their journey to self-sufficiency. We understand that education is the key to success. The 19 parents in our program who earned degrees last year and their children who stayed in school are proof that hard work can make a difference!


Other ACHIEVEability donation drives include the Thanksgiving Dinner Drive and Holiday Gift Drive.
