Committed Impact Partners, EDA Contractors Honored as “Heroes of Hope”Published 09 / 23 / 2021
We are honored to stand alongside Turning Points for Children as committed impact partners and be recognized as their “Heroes of Hope” at the 2021 Drive-In Gala.
“EDA & Ed are more than sponsors and volunteers, they are impact partners of Turning Points for Children and together we are building Stronger Families and Brighter Futures throughout Philadelphia.” – Turning Points for Children
Leading the EDA Way, our passionate and dedicated EDA Cares volunteers continue to inspire us with the work they’re doing to support our local community. This summer, we were able to join together with Turning Point’s Food Pantry program, FAWN, delivering over 10,500 pounds of groceries to over 18,000 individuals. Through The Bridge, Philadelphia’s only substance abuse treatment program for adolescents, our family has been able to support disenfranchised youth searching for help. Speaking about his time volunteering for the annual Christmas gift drives and wrappings our devoted CEO, Ed DeAngelis reflects:
“The children from those programs are disenfranchised and they really don’t know if people care for them so when we come and we do things for them, you can’t imagine what it does to light up their day and light up their life.”
― Ed DeAngelis
Making a difference within the community we serve is one of our EDA Family’s passions and why we volunteer through our community outreach program, EDA Cares. Through EDA Cares we have been able to share our passion for building stronger communities, successful together.
