When Messina was established over 100 years ago, the purpose of the club was to support our members and surrounding community. Bringing back that mission for our current iteration is a damn privilege.
Join us on Dec 19th.
Our next event will be volunteering at Brighter Holidays, directly handing gifts to hundreds of families, on December 19th between 4:00 to 7:00 pm, for their largest and final gift giving event. You'll be alongside your fellow Messina members, and if you'd like to bring along non-member friends, you are absolutely welcome to do so. We'll head back to the club afterward for some feel-good drinks as well.
More about the Organization
Turning Points for Children is an organization that has been serving youth and families in Philadelphia for over 175 years. Because chronic poverty is at the root of many of the issues faced by the families that TPC serves, their prevention programs are designed to look especially at difficult family relationships, child abuse and neglect, teen pregnancy, high dropout rates, unemployment, and inadequate health care. Their holiday gift program, Brighter Holidays, provides children in Turning Points programs the opportunity to experience the joy that comes from receiving a gift during the holiday season.
