Philly Cares helps provide care packages to the less fortunate living on the streets of Philadelphia. These packages contain simple necessities and assistance information documents and are hand distributed around Philadelphia.

My name is Jade Soto, and I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. What urged me to create Philly Cares was the abundance of people I saw day in and day out begging on the streets of my very city, the one of "brotherly love" that is!

I was never a fan of handing people money because I never knew what way I would enable them. I knew I needed a way to offer my help in a way I was sure would be put to good use.

Care packages were then the start of this organization in 2014 with a few friends of mine during the Christmas season. Just a simple large ziplock bag filled with daily essentials [water, crackers, soap, combs, wipes, etc.]. Assistance information documents have now even been added to the packages as well. There's not really a way to verbally describe the feeling you get when handing someone a package full of things you know they can use. Well, that is until you join me and try it!

This organization is a way for not only me to give back to the city that I was raised in, but for anyone who cares to do the same.

Bi-monthly, I host donation drop offs and package preparations and personally drive around and hand deliver each package. I urge anyone to join me in any way you would like.

Always remember.... People need people to survive!
