The Children’s Seashore House was founded in 1872 and is the nation’s fourth oldest pediatric hospital. The Children’s Seashore House is a regional teaching hospital that provides specialized care and rehabilitation to children with developmental disabilities and chronic illnesses. In 1998, Children’s Seashore House joined The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to provide some of the best pediatric care in the nation. AMHFCU sponsors this charity through our Kids-N-Hope Foundation.
Philabundance is the Delaware Valley’s largest hunger relief organization, acquiring, rescuing and distributing food to help feed those in need and advocating for policies that increase food access.

What They Do: House the Chronically Homeless
Budget: $28.3M | Founded: 1989
Project HOME: Run by the famous Sister Mary Scullion with the radical tagline “None of us are home until all of us are home,” the nonprofit has gained considerable fame in its nearly three decades for its comprehensive homelessness services. (Jon Bon Jovi is a high-profile friend of the organization.) These programs include on-the-street outreach, workforce development, and 802 units of permanent supportive housing. Its latest project is 30 affordable housing units at 8th and Girard for LGBTQ youth, who are more likely to end up homeless; clients include those who have aged out of the foster-care system. Groundbreaking on what is purportedly the first young-adult residence of its kind is this month.
The Red Paw Emergency Relief Team is an emergency services, nonprofit organization run by firefighters that works in conjunction with the Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management, the Philadelphia Fire Department, the American Red Cross, to provide emergency assistance including search & rescue, emergency transport, shelter, and veterinary care to animals involved in fires and other residential disasters.
Meals for the Homeless
What They Do: Three Square Meals x 365
Budget: $3.6M | Founded: 1878
Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission: Yes, there’s a religious bent to this Callowhill nonprofit. But even the godless can get behind an org that’s been feeding the needy every day of the week — including Sunday, of course — for almost a century and a half. It’s more than that, though, with emergency shelters, an urban farm, a furniture bank and outreach workers in Bucks County, GED prep, and a year-long Overcomer Program for men in recovery. The org relies on volunteers to keep costs down — some 7,000 people helped out in 2016 — so if you can’t donate, consider stopping in to serve a meal.
