With Life Science Cares Philadelphia
Our Philadelphia life science community is making a difference by volunteering with Life Science Cares!
Greetings!

Life Science Cares kicked off January with three volunteer opportunities in Philadelphia. We had volunteers from ten different life science companies participate - check out an album of all of our January volunteer events!


As you can see, our volunteers:
  • sorted food at Philabundance to help feed the one in five Philadelphians impacted by food insecurity
  • packaged clothing and supplies for 101 kids at Cradles to Crayons
  • practiced radical hospitality while serving a meal to 417 guests of Broad Street Ministries; and
  • three of our colleagues are also serving as mentors to young adults participating with Year Up
