On November 24, nearly 80 Penn Medicine employees and their family and friends volunteered at The Great Gathering, a Thanksgiving feast for the homeless and disadvantaged held at the First District Plaza at 38th and Market. More than 20 volunteers from Presby joined in the effort, where 214 turkeys were cooked in order to serve dinner for over 27 shelters, comprising 3,067 adults and more than 200 children. This annual event was organized by Compassion Community Development Corporation (CDC) based in West Philadelphia. The CDC was so very appreciative of the Penn Medicine efforts. Presby first participated in the event last year, but this year was the first year the volunteer effort came from all Penn Medicine entities. As you can see from the photos, our employees were happy to serve. Many thanks to all those who so generously donated their time.
