The Issue: Poverty Rates in Philadelphia
In 2009, the median income in Philadelphia was less than half of that in its seven suburban counties, and the poverty rate is now at 25%, according to a 2011 report by The Pew Charitable Trusts' Philadelphia Research Initiative.
The Campaign: Giving Backpacks Full of School Supplies
If this Grassroots campaign raises $300, then Helping Hand Rescue Mission can provide backpacks filled with school supplies to 25 low-income children. Each additional $12 donation will provide a backpack with supplies for another child. All donations up to $1,000 will be matched by the Kyle Korver Foundation.
All donations will be matched up to a $1,000 total by the Kyle Korver Foundation.
