This summer we are teaming up with the City of Philadelphia’s Parks and Recreation Department to support their Suit Up for Summer campaign!
Philadelphia offers residents 72 public pools to visit each summer. These pools welcome nearly 1 million visitors each year, offering healthy, active, summer fun for children. They also offer swim camps, swim meets and last year, 11,617 free swimming classes.
However, sometimes our littlest Philadelphia neighbors cannot enjoy these resources because they do not have access to appropriate swimwear and gear.
This summer, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation is leading a city-wide campaign to collect and distribute new swimwear and swim accessories for Philly’s youth.
We are supporting this program by collecting funds to donate to the campaign and we hope you can help us!
You can donate here:
To send a check, please make payable to St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children and add Suit Up for Summer to the memo line.
Checks can be mailed to:
St. Christopher’s Foundation for Children
1800 JFK Boulevard, Suite 1550
Philadelphia, PA 19103
To donate suits and swim accessories, there are six convenient locations throughout the Philadelphia area. Donations will be accepted between the hours of 2 pm to 7 pm, Monday through Friday.
Please join us to help Philadelphia’s kids Suit Up for Summer!
