Temple University’s Student-Run Public Relations Firm Collects $200 Worth of Donations to Celebrate a Decade of Service
Philadelphia, PA – (November 22, 2017) — PRowl Public Relations, Temple University’s first and only nationally affiliated student-run public relations firm, collected $200 worth of donations for the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission, a non-profit organization dedicated to help the homeless and disadvantaged people of Philadelphia.
Donations were collected on Nov. 13 and 15 at The View at Montgomery student apartment complex located next to Temple University’s campus. Firm associates volunteered 10 hours of service collecting canned goods and cash donations in the lobby of the building.
The firm chose Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission for their strong commitment to serving local Philadelphians in need. The organization provides three meals a day at their Center City location, and their Germantown location serves as a transitional home for women.
“Every year the Mission depends on its partners from the local community to come alongside and provide for some of our most basic needs,” says Melissa Shaffer, the Volunteer Coordinator for Sunday Breakfast Mission. “Without our thoughtful and faithful donors, we would be without the food and clothing we need to keep serving and caring for the homeless men and women of Philadelphia.”
“For the past 10 years, the community has supported PRowl, so this holiday season we felt it was time to give back,” says Clarissa Ford, Firm Director. “I am extremely proud of our members’ initiative to contribute to such a heartwarming cause. Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission has supported Philadelphia for more than 100 years, so the firm is honored to help keep food on the table for local residents.”
PRowl accepted donations such as canned vegetables, bags of sugar, decaf coffee and boxed stuffing mix. Monetary donations were also accepted and with the money donated, PRowl purchased more donations for the rescue mission.
“I was overwhelmed with the support not only from PRowl, but the Temple community as well,” says Jeremy Rives, Account Executive. “I hope the tradition of giving back follows the next generation of PRowlers.”
