Join us to provide meals, diapers, and literacy materials to families in West Philadelphia. Distribution takes place outdoors, with masks and sanitizer readily available. We're fighting hunger while supporting the education of all West Philly kids.

We're serving families Monday-Friday each week, with volunteer shifts each day.

Think clearly and write with clarity-It's our battle cry, our tagline, our mantra. It's served as our elevator pitch and mission statement since our launch in 2009.

Not everyone-as is so strikingly apparent of late-thinks clearly. And even fewer people express themselves with clarity.

But for those who nail both-clarity of thought and expression-a lifetime of Mightiness is there for the taking.

We're true believers in the power of writing.

But when the virus began to strangle our Mighty communities, our mission suddenly needed amending.

You can't think or write with clarity if you're hungry.

So we began distributing lunches to kids.

The lunch numbers grew quickly, so we began also distributing boxes of groceries. We added books too, of course, and Tootsie Roll Pops, to add up to a pretty sweet combo.

Then we began adding diapers for the smallest members of our communities.

We'll continue to distribute food and essential needs to families at our MW locations as well as at three PHA centers.
