St. Raymond’s House in Philadelphia, a permanent housing program for chronically homeless people with disabilities, is in need of 8 student volunteers to help weed and organize their gardens. This is a real need for their community and would be a tremendous help to their program.
This day of service will be held on Saturday, March 6th from 10:00am to 3:00pm and will be 100% outdoors. The day will also include a brief opening prayer service and a closing reflection.
