Aid for Friends is now known as Caring for Friends

Monetary donations

Caring for Friends™, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, is registered with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of State Bureau of Charitable Organizations.

With the generous support of caring individuals, corporations and foundations, we provide food and friendship to thousands of homebound client friends and redistribute rescued food to community nonprofits and places of worship that serve seniors, the homeless and families with children in need across the 5-county Philadelphia region.

Whether you donate one time or on a regular basis through monthly giving, we greatly appreciate your support!

For every $1 donated, more than $6 is generated in free meals and services for our client friends
