We need your help. The Holiday Season is just around the corner and many families like those which we support at ACHIEVEability struggle to provide traditional Thanksgiving meals and Holiday gifts for their children. While ACHIEVEability can help offset some of their costs of living, our families are responsible to pay for expenses such as rent, utilities, food and childcare. Money is often scarce for essentials and can be especially difficult to manage during this time of year. This is where your support comes in.
ACHIEVEability Supports the Malvern Prep School Expedition
ACHIEVEability was excited and honored to participate in the first Malvern Preparatory Middle School Expedition on Friday, September 27, 2013.
Our volunteers make an amazing difference to our mission. Last week, volunteers from Ernst & Young and Vanguard partnered with ACHIEVEability to rehab a total of five homes on September 20, 2013 and September 21, 2013, respectively.
As part of EY Connect Day, a group of 23 volunteers from the local Philadelphia Ernst & Young offices helped ACHIEVEability to paint and clean two homes. This was the second consecutive year Ernst & Young staff have volunteered their services during EY Connect Day. Ernst & Young has also offered its support to ACHIEVEability by sponsoring our largest fundraising event of the year, Food for Thought.
Vanguard has become a household name at ACHIEVEability for the breadth of their support and the passion of their crew. For the seventh consecutive year, Vanguard has volunteered with us during the United Way Day of Caring. This year, 35 volunteers helped to paint and clean three homes, preparing them for new families. Vanguard has been a steady supporter of ACHIEVEability for the past several years offering volunteer services for process and IT implementations, during our two major fundraisers, Food for Thought and Coaches' Cup Golf Outing and during the United Way Day of Caring and MLK Day of Service.
The State of Our Community
On September 7, 2013, more than 100 residents from Haddington and Cobbs Creek neighborhoods attended ACHIEVEability’s “The State of Our Community” event, which took place at Boys’ Latin Charter School.
Backpack Donation Drive
Thanks to donors such as Urban Outfitters and Vanguard, the 2013 Backpack and Book Donation Drive was a success. More than 650 backpacks filled with school supplies and new/gently used books were donated to ACHIEVEability.
