Over the last 12 years their holiday party has grown to include 500 children from 9 schools and 3 homeless shelters in Philadelphia. The children still receive a hot lunch and a gift and in addition a book of their choice, school supplies, tee shirts and numerous give a ways. They have a day of entertainment, and activities with a carnival, music, face painting, photo buttons, clowns and more, and are surrounded by volunteers offering them unconditional love.
We have expanded our horizons so that we are now helping children all year round. Rubye’s Kids is hosting birthday parties for children in shelters, creating Rubye’s Kids Reading Corners & Library in shelters, Rubye’s Kids Closet providing school supplies for needy children and our most recent Back to School Backpack project that provided 100 children in shelters with backpacks filled with school supplies.
Rubye Caesar’s spirit lives on and continues to inspire us. We need your help to perpetuate our programs.
