Here’s your chance help a highly-anticipated community event and to raise awareness of your company or organization in front of thousands Philadelphia families!
A startling number of families in Philadelphia live in deep poverty, with approximately 24.5% of households living below the federal poverty level. Children living in deep poverty, on average, score much lower in school than their peers and experience heightened levels of school dropout, behavioral and socioemotional problems, physical health problems, and developmental delays. The chronic stress of living in poverty has an adverse effect on the academic outcomes of children, impeding their ability to concentrate and learn, especially during early childhood. We hope to change that by preparing students for school with backpacks filled with supplies while linking families to vital health and social services resources and providing a day of safe, online fun with virtual games, crafts, live entertainment and more.
Sponsors and donors will be acknowledged on event promotional materials, signage displayed during the drive-up backpack distribution, social media and on our event website. Overall, Main Stage and Tent Sponsors are able to provide one promotional item* or flyer* to be included in the student backpacks.
Checks may be made payable to St. Christopher’s Hospital Carnival and mailed to: PO Box 8215, Philadelphia, PA 19101-9684
*Promotional items or flyers will be subject to review and approval.
Mark your calendars for the Virtual Carnival Go Live on July 31, 9:00 a.m. and join the fun. Tag us with #stchriscarnival and share how you’re staying connected and healthy.
