Breaking Bread on Broad: With our Neighborhood Kids
This summer, June 26 through August 25, 8am to 1pm

This summer we are providing meals to underserved children in our immediate neighborhood at our building at 619 N. Broad Street (at Mt. Vernon Street). We are doing much more than just serving free meals.

Volunteers needed - This is where we need your help! Do you have a unique skill that you would like to share with the neighborhood children? Or maybe you want to come in and do some summer reading with the kids.  If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jeremy Schmidt. This initative is made possible with the generous support from congregants Robert Schwartz and Judith Creed, and is in partnership with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Nutritional Development Services, and various neighborhood groups.

Check out our blog for stories from Breaking Bread on Broad.
