May is National Community Action Month. CAADC is one of over a 1,000 Community Action Agencies across the country that are helping low-income people change their lives and embody the spirit of hope. Agencies in almost every community in America are carrying out the Promise of Community Action to Help People and Change Lives.
Locally, CAADC is promoting Community Action Month and the help that we give to needy residents of Delaware County through a variety of ways. For instance, during the month of May along State Street in Media, 30 flags will be displayed to help increase public awareness of CAADC and our programs.
Team Community Action Agency of Delaware County will participate in the 20th Annual Walk and Run Against Hunger on Saturday April 9th. They have established a goal of $500 which will be used to support our food program efforts (such as the food cupboards at the shelters, the Life Center Feeding Program, emergency food vouchers, etc.).
CAADC Staff will be participating in the 20th Annual Walk + Run Against Hunger for the fourth year in a row. The event will take place on Saturday April 9th starting from the Philadelphia Museum of Art. This fun-filled 5K event raises much-needed funds for more than 100 food pantries, soup kitchens and hunger-relief agencies in Southeastern Pennsylvania and South Jersey. Funds raised by CAADC staff will support the food cupboards at our shelters, the daily feeding program at the Life Center and the food pantry at our Boothwyn Direct Service office.

The Life Center Feeding Program each night at 7:00 provides a full meal to individuals or families from the community that are in need. The Life Center is located at 6310 Market Street in Upper Darby.
