“Feeding the needy. You need food to live. And hunger is a major problem in the world. I support local food banks, soup kitchens, can drives. Things like that, that get food into the mouths of people who really need it.”
“Organizations that assist with school and college readiness. The drop-out rate in Philadelphia public schools is very troubling. But there are groups that provide money and other resources to help young people remain in school. They also provide moral support for students who aren’t motivated to stay in school.”
“Any organization that shelters and protects animals from abuse. I have a huge affinity for animals. I grew up with many animals. Every single animal we’ve owned came from a rescue. We never bought from a puppy mill or pet shop. Those places are breeding grounds for abuse.”
“Cancer research. I’ve lost several friends and relatives to cancer, including my father. It’s a devastating disease. I support research that will improve a cancer sufferer’s quality of life, along with stopping the progression of the disease.”
