Boscov’s Friends Helping Friends Event - October 18, 2016:

Once again, CAADC will be participating in the Friends Helping Friends event at the Boscov’s at the Granite Run Mall on October 18th.  CAADC will be selling Shopping Passes for $5 (all of which benefits the Agency).  The Shopping Pass gives you 25% off your entire purchase (some items are only 10-15% off and some are excluded).  It is a great way to get an early start on holiday shopping.  Please contact Daniel Nesbitt at (610) 891-3997 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) if you would like to buy a ticket.  This event will help the Agency to continue to raise additional funds to support our programs.


CAADC Participating in 20th Annual Walk and Run Against Hunger on April 9th:

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.  If you would like to sponsor our staff please go to
