Bobby is just a child, but he has been diagnosed with cancer. His father had to cut back on hours at work in order to take Bobby back and forth to appointments. With less money and high medical bills to pay, they struggled. Bobby felt bad about the hardships caused by his cancer and felt worse that his favorite holiday, Christmas, wouldn’t be celebrated. They couldn’t afford food or rent, much less gifts.
Then a neighbor told Bobby’s dad about Cityteam. When Bobby’s dad came to Cityteam, the staff and volunteers jumped right in to help with a food box for him to take home that day. He also received gifts for Bobby and his sisters to open on Christmas day. The support from Cityteam makes their burden a little lighter and their Christmas such a meaningful and special time.Read More Stories
Your involvement is what makes it possible to change lives, families, and communities. Every program at Cityteam, from a hot meal to addiction recovery, is only possible because of support from individuals, companies, churches, and schools who care about helping others. You don’t have to be a superhero to make a difference. Here are some ways YOU can get involved.
Our Food Services program meets the needs of families by providing a box of food to help those struggling with hunger.
We work with parents to ensure that their children maintain a healthy environment.
Our shelter provides a safe place for those struggling with homelessness to sleep.
We’re extraordinarily grateful this holiday season to everyone that helps us share God’s love to the homeless and those suffering from poverty here in the Greater Delaware Valley.
You may never meet the people we serve but let me tell you how thankful they are for a hot meal, a big food box, a box of diapers, a night of shelter, someone to talk to, or a special Christmas gift for their child. They have the chance to receive the hope that only God can provide and these moments can inspire them to change their lives.
I invite you to join us this holiday season by volunteering or donating to share the joy of the holidays with those in need. Wishing you a blessed holiday season.
