Make a Difference for the Homeless

In keeping with the holiday spirit of giving and our mission statement, Respiratory Care is once again collecting non-perishable foods and donations for the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission.The Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission is the oldest rescue mission in Philadelphia and the third oldest rescue mission in the country.  The mission originally began serving Sunday breakfast to the homeless but now serves three meals a day every day of the year.  In 2011, the mission served over 119,000 meals in its Center City location.

You can make the difference in the lives of homeless men, women and children throughout our community by participating in a food drive for the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission.  All you need to do is drop off any non-perishable canned or boxed food products (unbreakable containers only) to Respiratory Care, located on 3 White, by Friday, December 21.  Individual departments may also collect food and we will pick it up on December 21.  The food we collect will be used to serve meals at the mission, as well as to create food boxes for the needy.  If you have any questions please email or call 215-662-6426.
