Philoxenia was pleased to support FOCUS NORTH AMERICA in a backpack giveaway. Our donation helped to provide 288 backpacks filled with school supplies for students in the Bronx through our community partner Vibrant Emotional Health.
Philoxenia – the Greek word for “friend to the stranger” – expresses the heart of our mission: to feed and clothe the homeless.
May those who go hungry every day know that there are many compassionate individuals who love them, care for them and will feed them until there is no longer a need to do so.
Please join us in helping to care for those who need us the most.
“If you can’t feed a hundred people then just feed one.” Mother Teresa, Saint Teresa of Calcutta
