“The H.O.M.E. Page Cafe” at the Philadelphia Library
Earlier this month I was invited to cover a special event at Del Frisco’s. Del Frisco’s is donating dozen’s of their famous Lemon Cupcakes daily to Sr. Mary Scullion’s “The H.O.M.E. Page Cafe” at the Philadelphia Library. (Located on the first floor towards the grand staircase on the right.)
The man on the right is a previous homeless man who was helped by Project Home and currently works at Del Frisco’s. 6 ABC’s Monica Malpass (left) looks on as Del Frisco’s GM Shang Skipper and DM Dee Lincoln present $5,000 check to Sister Mary Scullion (right)
All proceeds from the sale of the cupcakes, as well as the other products sold at the cafe, go to the organization she started over 15 years ago Project Home; A nonprofit organization that provides housing and services to chronically homeless men and women in Philadelphia. The cupcakes are only $1.50 and although they are not on my Nutrisystem plan I did have one. OMG they are delicious. The H.O.M.E. Page Cafe is the result of a partnership between the Free Library and Project H.O.M.E., a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing housing and services to chronically homeless men and women in Philadelphia. The H.O.M.E. Page Cafe will offer Library users beverages and baked goods (including the Del Frisco’s cupcake and Metropolitan Bakery goods —as well as a seating area with free wireless internet access—while also offering Project H.O.M.E. members job training and valuable learning opportunities
Today Sister Mary Scullion found out that she is one of Time Magazine’s 100 most important people this year. I know for Philadelphia, especially the homeless, she is one of our most important and influential people every year.
