Gifts in Kind

Gifts in Kind are a wonderful way to support the Center. We are always looking for educational books for our Library, as well as workbooks suitable for our Adult Education Program. We also accept season appropriate clothes to support our Homeless Program. For other Gifts in Kind, please contact the Center.


Volunteering time is also a wonderful way to support The Center. Volunteers are always needed for Sunday Breakfast, Saturday for Seniors, Adult Education, and the After School Program. For our After School Program, we ask that a volunteer be over the age of 18 and be able to pass a Criminal Background Check and Child Abuse Clearance. Contact the Center for program specifics.

We are currently recruiting volunteers to help several of our programs. We are looking for people interested in tutoring for our Adult Education Program as well as people that want to volunteer serving food for Sunday Breakfast. If you are interested or would like to gain more information on time requirements please contact us today!

Annual Appeal 2017

Just like all great things we were born from a simple thought, a group of people with a passion to create community. From that we grew...We grew into a plan, a design, a partner, a mission with the purpose of investing in people to improve all communities. Cheers to 40 years of service!

–April Thomas-Jones

Join us as we celebrate 40 years of Passion, Progressiveness, Empowerment, and Community!

There was no better way to kick off our 40th birthday than to provide a new service for our fellow Philadelphians! With the support of the Mayor’s Office of Empowerment and supporters like you, we have been able to launch The Sunday Breakfast Program. Through this service we provide showers, clothes, a sit down hot meal and a take away meal for anyone in need! In just 10 short weeks we’ve served over 1452 meals, 396 pieces of clothes, 206 showers and were able to help bridge Gus, one of our unemployed homeless participants, to full time employment!

That’s what we call “Birthday with a Bang!”

Join in now to support this and all of our youth through senior programs and services offered through the Center. Just in the last year, with your support, instead of being home alone Hannah and about 35 other children just like her had the opportunity to create summer camp memories. After completing our Adult Education Program Raymond applied to the Community College of Philadelphia and will start there next Fall!  Mrs. Wu knows she doesn’t have to be alone because there is always a safe and secure place to come on the weekends.

Wonderful things are happening at the Center and we are proud to have you as an active member!  It is our birthday wish that you join us in this celebration by continuing to support the Center and its mission. No donation is too small or too large. It has been proven that together we have the power to make real change happen!  We thank you for your support, your gift is priceless.

10th Annual Mardi Gras Party and Silent Auction Sponsorship

Our Annual Mardi Gras Fundraiser & Silent Auction will take place on February 9th, 2018 at the Old Pine Community Center. This year’s goal is to raise $25,000 so that we can continue to fund our youth, senior, and homeless outreach programs.

So far in 2017, we have provided over 10,000 meals to the homeless or near-homeless, granted over $20,000 in scholarships to neighborhood children through our Summer in the City Summer Camp, and continue to provide an enriching and educational environment for our local children in the Arts and Education After-School Program.

In order to meet our fundraising goal, we are asking for donations from local businesses and organizations who have a desire to uplift and empower our community. Can we count on your support this year?

By giving to this annual event, you’ll help support the programs at Old Pine Community Center and ensure that we can continue to give back to this community. As a sponsor, your organization will receive an entire table at our Mardi Gras celebration and you will be listed in our event program, website, our social media sites and the press release for the event.

To see a list of all the benefits and perks of becoming a sponsor, please see the attached sponsorship level and ad documents.

We hope that we can count on you to support! If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 215.627.2493 or Center@oldpine.org.
