Aid for Friends is now known as Caring for Friends

Volunteer as a community organization

We offer many opportunities for organizations looking to do community service work. Caring for Friends™ successfully works with schools, churches, synagogues, and other groups such as scouts, sororities, and fraternities.

Community service projects can be customized to your organization, and may include:


Weekly or monthly cooking—Gather your staff or employees at your facility or our commercial kitchen to prepare meals for the elderly, homebound, disabled, or isolated individuals served by Caring for Friends. Learn more about contributing to our cooking program.

Food driveCollect nonperishable food that can be used for cooking meals or for our Breakfast Bags or Caring Boxes. We can also use items your group collects during your food drive for our community food distribution efforts.

Breakfast Bags—Members of your group or organization can work as a team to assemble Breakfast Bags, which consist of nonperishable, healthy food for our regular client friends and other individuals to ensure they have a hearty start to each day. Groups typically prepare these bags as part of a volunteer event. Learn more about assembling Breakfast Bags.

Notes to client friends—We typically insert friendly, inspirational messages in each of the Breakfast Bags. Learn about how your group can get together to create these notes.

Sponsor a freezer—Caring for Friends stores meals for our client friends in freezers throughout the Philadelphia area. Your group can make a meaningful difference and sponsor a freezer for $1,000.
