American Airlines is providing relief help to the unsheltered in Philadelphia by way of donating food and critical supplies to Philabundance, City of Philadelphia as city officials relocate unsheltered from Philadelphia International Airport to local housing opportunities.
The airline is teaming up with the City of Philadelphia Office of Homeless Services (OHS), the Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services (DBHIDS) and Philabundance to donate more than 28,000 snack boxes, 1,000 personal pandemic kits and 27,500 pounds of juice and other beverages to those in need.
“The pandemic has had a profound impact on our livelihoods and our daily routines, but our essential team members are working to do good while keeping Philadelphia connected and moving,” said Jim Moses, Vice President of Northeast Hubs and Gateways for American Airlines. “Today’s donation builds on American’s partnership with the city and Philabundance as they work to provide support to some of the most vulnerable in our community.”
“The city is focused on the health and safety of everyone at the airport — those who are unsheltered, outreach teams, and PHL and other city employees,” said City of Philadelphia Managing Director Brian Abernathy. “We are grateful for American Airlines’ partnership and donation of food, protective equipment and sanitary supplies that will help keep everyone healthy and safe.”
