Programs & Services


Grocery Care Packages:

Old Pine Community Center aims to ensure quality and nutritious food for all members of the community. On a weekly basis, OPCC provides care packages, consisting of groceries and other household necessities, to local families experiencing food insecurity through our partnerships with Mighty Writers and Puentes de Salud. Care packages include staples for a well-balanced diet, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, bread, milk, and a variety of canned goods and pantry items. Each package is personalized to the size of the family that requested it. Families are also able to request items they may need, such as toiletries or baby formula.

Weekend Meal Program:

Through our partnership with Depaul USA, Old Pine Community Center's volunteers make 200 meals every week for their local Philadelphia programming. We help supplement their existing meal program by providing four meals for fifty residents per weekend, lunch and dinner for Saturday and Sunday.

Depaul USA has five programs in Philadelphia that provide services for individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness. Find out more here!

Children & Families

Old Pine Community Center offers flexible and affordable Afterschool care for local families. Our staff picks up students from Meredith, McCall, and Nebinger Elementary schools to be safely escorted to OPCC (students who attend other schools, or are homeschooled, can be dropped off by a parent or guardian by 3:30 pm). Children are provided with designated homework help, healthy snacks, arts and crafts projects, gym and exercise time, and guest visitors for themed activities.

Our summer program is a 9-week camp that bridges child care needs between school years. More information on Summer in the City, including information on how to register and apply for financial assistance, can be found here!

We aim to make our programs accessible to all. Financial aid through Child Care Works through Pennsylvania Early Learning Resource Center is available for families and students who qualify.


Community Engagement


Old Pine Community Center hosts a variety of services that foster community engagement. Past activities have included a holiday toy drive, a winter coat drive for veterans, and a Thanksgiving dinner to welcome refugees and asylum seekers to their first Thanksgiving in the US, in partnership with The Hebrew Immigration Aid Society (HIAS). In addition, OPCC runs monthly curated collections for a variety of community needs. You can find our current collection here.
