Lifewerks, The Giving Garden and Soap Box Live

Lifewerks believes a nonprofit should be a lean giving machine. Our assets are in people. We as leaders volunteer and encourage volunteering in those we serve. Using roughly 10,000 volunteer hours we are able to supply around $100,000 worth of food and serve 15,000 people in our various programs annually.

Lifewerks mentors students to mentor students and serve others utilizing several programs. In conjunction with Widener University's PS Bonner program, our volunteer students lead volunteer teams serving in these programs.
~
We distribute food, mentor and offer a voice using media. As a relief organization we have offered a wide range of programming that includes arts initiatives, garden and other camps, nutrition classes, and financial/housing coaching.
~
The Giving Garden offers a food pantry and urban garden to the communities of Brookhaven, Parkside, Woodlyn, Morton, Wallingford and North Chester/Widener area, offering food at our pantry and distributing to those in need through food drops, schools, senior centers and private deliveries.
~
We serve as an outreach center working in partnership with DIFAN, Delaware County Interfaith Food /Network. We also serve as a member agency of Philabundance and the Global Hunger Fund of Send Relief.
~
Our upcoming Soap Box Live: We will teach storytelling, journalism and digital media skills. At the heart is to provide urban youth with a voice. The goal will be to produce podcasts of students on our own internet radio station.
~
The curriculum is based on the successful UNCEF children’s radio foundation program in Capetown, SA. In addition to the weekly program we hope to offer story slams as community gatherings to foster hope and racial healing.
