WMMR & Acme Support Pierre's Coat Drive for Project H.O.M.E.

Mark your calendars. 

WMMR and Acme Markets are again teaming up to support "Pierre's Coat Drive for Project H.O.M.E.".

"Project H.O.M.E. (Housing, Opportunities for Employment, Medical Care, Education) empowers people to break the cycle of homelessness, address the structural causes of poverty, and attain their fullest potential as members of society."  Project H.O.M.E. is headquartered at 1515 Fairmount Avenue Philadelphia, PA 19130 just eight blocks north of city hall.  It's revitalization efforts are focused in the North Central Philadelphia community known as the "St. Elizabeth's/Diamond Street" neighborhood, and Ridge Avenue commercial corridor, but the project has multiple locations centered around north central Philadelphia.

Project H.O.M.E. HQ Philadelphia PAEarlier today I had the opportunity to visit with Lindsay Giblin at Fairmount Ave who coordinates Project H.O.M.E.'s in-kind donations.  Within the week they will also be opening the Women's Winter Emergency Respite which will offer shelter, a drop-in location, warm meals, and social services.  To prepare for the opening, they are still looking for blankets, towels, breakfast foods, coffee, tea, sugar, and new socks/underwear (preferably in larger sizes). Please contact her anytime at 215-232-7272 ext:3058 or by email @ for more details.  

Over the course of the next three weeks, Pierre Robert and the WMMRmy will be accepting donations locally at three Acme Market Locations:

Sat 12-2 Jan 31: ACME Markets Bala Shopping Center 121 East City Avenue Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania
Sat 12-2 Feb 7: ACME Markets 920 Red Lion Rd. (Red Lion & Bustleton) Northeast Philadelphia, PA
Sat 12-2 Feb 14: ACME Markets 175 Route 70 Medford, NJ

They are looking for and will be collecting new or gently used coats, blankets, hats, scarves or gloves that will go directly to the homeless in our hometown.  Please give generously - all items are a great help.  It's a rough time of year and this is a great way to give back to the community and help those most in need. 

WMMR Rocks!  Thank you Acme & Support Project H.O.M.E. today!
