We are always in need of tools and supplies for our worksites and the Materials Reuse Center. Without donations of these items, we would not be able to complete our projects or provide our training program.

The Philadelphia Community Corps is an exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code. This means that most contributions, both monetary and in-kind (goods or services), are tax-deductible. 

Please contact Alex McNeil – alex@philadelphiacommunitycorps.org, if you are able to contribute. Any support is greatly appreciated!
