PHILADELPHIA

Sunshine Pals in Philadelphia

 

This year, 2017, we have increased the level of commitment to the SW Philly area. 

The Common Place Scholars is a Faith-Based after school program that inspires young minds to learn in a safe and secure environment. This program gives children a place to find purpose; instead of wondering the streets aimlessly. The tuition for the program is $1500 per child per year. With your financial donations we can provide purpose, hope, and love to children that deserve a chance to Shine!  Donate 

Here is an update regrading our first recipient of our scholarship! Keep the donations coming so we can continue to improve lives.

 

WE PROVIDED OUR FIRST $1500 SCHOLARSHIP TO TCPS AT THE 2017 BENEFIT DINNER!!!

Christmas 2014 was our first public presence in Southwest Philadelphia. We were blessed to raise funds and donations to provide 43 families and 112 children, which made up those families, with a full Christmas dinner and gifts for each child. A special thank you to all the volunteers and the local businesses that helped make this a success… Old Navy, Giant, Toys for Tots, The Common Place, Billy’s Legacy Foundation, Target and Walmart.
