On a snowy Saturday afternoon, YPN volunteers brought some holiday cheer to the Salvation Army’s Eliza Shirley House. Volunteers decorated the foyer, hallways and common areas with christmas trees, lights and stockings.
The Eliza Shirley House provides emergency shelter for primarily homeless single women with children. The House provides not only shelter, but healthy meals and various in-house services, such as spiritual guidance, medical services and various recreational programs.
YPN is proud to continue a tradition of volunteerism, with the recent expansion of volunteer efforts through-out Philadelphia. The program began when YPN adopted McClure Elementary as a project through Greater Philadelphia Cares Day. Since then, YPN added a Career Day and Spring Fling for students with perfect attendance. This year, YPN included Philabundance and the Salvation Army. Please continue to keep up with our volunteer efforts and check ypnphilly.com for more opportunities to volunteer!
