This is Episode 070 with Britt Carpenter, Founder of Muttropolitan and the Philly Unknown Project
About the Philly Unknown Project (http://phillyunknownproject.org/)
Bringing cohesion and bridging the gaps in communities one block at a time.
As Philly grows stronger as a city and continues to show signs of forward progression in some areas, there are still many areas and neighborhoods/communities that have become neglected. Most of these communities don’t have the resources available to make them better.
The Philly Unknown Project intends to cultivate community cohesion and educate and advocate for those who can’t be a voice for themselves.
They are a grass roots non-profit that provides hand-to-hand outreach through several methods.
They provide Compassion Bags, which serve as harm reduction kits containing snacks, t-shirts, socks, hygiene supplies, and other resources to provide hope for another day.
