Philly philanthropy phor phamilies in need.
My girls are very charged up about doing something.
Only one thing bothers me. It's something my husband heard on the news today. He heard that the displaced citizens will be put ahead of resident Philadelphians who are on a waiting list for housing. They will bump the disadvantaged citizens of Philly to the back of the line. If it's true it's just not right.
I've also heard many different versions of what is actually happening. Yesterday I heard that 1,000 persons of the New Orleans persuasion had landed here and were being put up in a school. We are ready for 3,000. I heard elsewhere that we are READY for 1,000 displaced families but only 35 have taken us up on it. My heart becomes faint at the thought of calling City Hall to inquire.
As for me and my phamily - we will clean the house and shop for the shelters this weekend.
