Recognizing that strong non-profits build strong communities, each year the Philadelphia Eagles select three local non-profits for a yearlong partnership through their Eagles Care initiative.
Fred’s Footsteps is thrilled to join Women Against Abuse and Food Moxie as 2019/2020 partners.
The season-long strategic partnership will enable Fred’s Footsteps to leverage the Eagles attention, support, and resources to increase our impact in the community.
