The mission of United Communities Southeast Philadelphia is to improve the quality of life for every generation and member of the multicultural community we serve by providing educational, advocacy, and social programs.
Why she's awesome: As one of her program's youngest students, Kelly always attempts to show kindness and compassion for her peers. She is very helpful to her fellow classmates and the program staff. Rarely is Kelly ever seen not smiling and laughing with her friends. Academically, Kelly displays excellence on a daily basis. She completes her homework in a timely manner and loves to read books aloud. Kelly is truly an asset to her program and an example to her peers.
Last week, United Communities celebrated its 5th Annual Spring Fundraiser at South Bowl! Attendees had a blast, partaking in unlimited bowling, food, drinks, and a silent auction. This year, we highlighted the work that United Communities has been doing with the Girls Today, Leaders Tomorrow Program, a United Way initiative aimed at preparing young women in middle and high school for college and career readiness.
We are proud to report that we sold over 160 tickets and raised over $10,000, our highest ever!! We would be remiss not to thank our incredibly generous sponsors and donors, without whom this fundraiser would not have been possible:
