In the past month, PIHN has come together with Raymour & Flanigan to raise funds for SEPTA passes to distribute to our neighbors who need transportation to get to job interviews, new jobs or take care of other responsinilities. Thanks to all of you, our “Wheels to Work” fundraiser was a wonderful success! Thanks to the generosity Raymour & Flanigan with an extra check from SEPTA, PIHN will be able to 571 bus tokens for PIHN and community families in need of transportation assistance.
We are thrilled to introduce our new faith community partner- Masjidullah, a Muslim community at Washington Lane and Limekiln Pike. Inspired by the Imam Roberto Rashid’s commitment to interfaith partnerships, members of Masjidullah responded generously to PIHN’s recent request for food contributions to cover a month of hospitality for our families. The community raised over $1,000 to cover hosting expenses. While Masjidullah cannot physically host PIHN families, many of the members have also stepped up to volunteer when our families are staying in other congregations. The community warmly welcomed PIHN’s Executive Director , Rachel Falkove, at a recent Friday worship service.
