Nicole the Office Girl here. This winter has been especially brutal. The extreme cold has left many families unable to cope, pay bills, and provide themselves with the things needed to feel comfortable. Everyone should have access to the necessities required for a functional home environment. Blankets, beds, and pillows are just the beginning of a long list of things families on Philadelphia desperately need.
One organization in the 215 REALLY stands out to me as one of those making a real difference for these families is One House At A Time. Many people don't realize that although these families have a house, they don't possess a lot of the things needed to make it a home. Simple things like a pillow can really change the game. I actually grew up in extreme poverty myself, so this hits really close to home for me. I remember getting a pillow and thinking it was the greatest day of my life. You can spread that joy to someone right too.
Through either financial, or physical contributions, you can help a needy family in Philadelphia thrive this winter. OHAAT has so many wonderful programs that allow even those without extra money to make a real change. Donating some time or even extra goods can be all the difference between struggle and success.
