Since its inception, Red Plenty has exceeded beyond all expectations. The need is great, and the enthusiasm and dedication of our volunteers has proven to be up to the challenge. On a shoestring budget, and thanks to the efforts of dozens of volunteer chefs, cooks, servers, and dishwashers, we have provided 600 free meals a month at a cost of less than a dollar a plate.
Philly Socialists hope that this sort of direct action can serve as an example of poor and working class people taking matters into their own hands. United, we can find innovative solutions to plug the gaps in our deteriorating social safety net.
For the past two years, Philly Socialists has been providing Free English classes to non-native speakers, many of whom are immigrants. Our program is located Fairhill, in an area known to residents as El Bloque de Oro, a proud and culturally vibrant neighborhood with a rate of poverty five times the national average.
Our students are workers, parents, and regular people like us. Our tutors come from many backgrounds, but we are united by a desire to live our values by making a direct impact on other people.
Donations help fund 75% of Philly Socialists' efforts. We are completely volunteer run, and all donations go to providing services and growing the organization.
One-time donations are handeled via PayPal through our fundraising non-profit Friends Of Socialism. Any questions or concerns should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dues are an integral source of funding for Philly Socialists and account for 10% of all of the money we raise.
Because doing good for the world costs money we ask that all members contribute $8 to $10 a month. Dues will be deducted monthly and payments can be cancelled at any time via PayPal or by emailing email@example.com.
