As a significant part of its mission, Helping Hands Philadelphia intends to positively impact the educational community. However, before HHP is able to reinvest back into local pre-K and K-12 educational institutions through the revenue created through the sale of their rehabilitation projects, HHP needs to establish strategic partnerships to get the ball rolling.
As such, Helping Hands Philadelphia is proud to announce a strategic partnership with the Philadelphia based, 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, Students Helping Students.
The mission of Students Helping Students is to reallocate gently-used school supplies and furnishings from wealthy to low-income schools across the country. To date, SHS has redistributed tens of thousands of supplies and furnishings to over 60 schools in Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and North Carolina.
Over the past few months, Students Helping Students and Helping Hands Philadelphia have worked together to donate roughly 2,000 books to South Philadelphia High School. As both organizations continue to grow, SHS and HHP look to strengthen their bond and help significantly impact the Philadelphia educational system in more ways than one.
