Philadelphia, PA 19107

Saint John’s Hospice is a shelter for homeless men in Philadelphia that provides food assistance, temporary residences, case management, mail service and more to those in need.

“This is something the staff has wanted to do for quite some time,” said Angelo Valletta, CFGP’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “We thought, what better way to celebrate our 5-year anniversary than to do something as a team that we’ve always wanted to do?”

CFGP staff members will be doing a combination of jobs that include serving lunch, distributing toiletries, and helping men sort through clothing donations.
