About ACHIEVEability

Annual Backpack Donation Drive

Thanks to the generous support of Cradles to Crayons and organizations such as Urban Outfitters, Bank of America, PECO and Greenphire, the 2016 Backpack Donation Drive was a huge success.


Marking our best year to date, more than 1,500 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 $30,000.


Other donors include Buck Consultants, A Xerox Company, Cora Capital Advisors, Grant Thornton LLP, Hamilton Lane, Intact Vascular, Neuronetics, Tau Gamma Delta Sorority, 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 38 parents in our program who earned degrees over the past two years, 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.
