Wreaths Across America: Our History, Tradition and Mission - Remember. Honor. Teach.

Remember. Honor. Teach. Wreaths Across America - Official Page is a year-round mission to Remember, Honor and Teach lasts all year long, far beyond the single day in December when they coordinate wreath-laying ceremonies. All throughout the year, Wreaths Across America works in a number of ways to show our veterans and their families that we will not forget—we will never forget. The Senate has just passed a resolution declaring December 18 as Wreaths Across America Day. Learn more about this mission and how you can participate.

Share the Spirit of Generosity With Your Children This Year - Main Line Parent

#GivingTuesday Regardless of the holidays you celebrate winter has become synonymous with being a season for giving. As children who celebrate gift-giving holidays make their own wish lists parents also wish to impart a spirit of generosity and charity to them. This year the charities we have included in this Giving Guide are seeing record numbers of requests for donations as many families have been hit hard by the pandemic financially. If you are able to share we encourage you to select one of the organizations here, and even if you aren’t able to contribute you could share this post so that maybe others you know can contribute to someone in need.

This season of giving finds even more in need, and we found ways you can help!

Cupola Academy is a #ProudMember of Main Line Parent and Philadelphia Family. Do you have a youth age 4-18? Are you looking to reignite their natural curiosity? Have you heard the term Partnership Education, but aren't quite sure what it means? We have been supporting families in creating and implementing meaningful educational journeys for the past 45 years. ***We are offering a FREE Educational Consultation in the month of December to all families who mention they heard about us through the #ProudMember campaign on MLP.*** Here's what other families are saying about their involvement with Cupola Academy: “CA has been the most wonderful gift to our family because it has made my 16 year old son so happy and excited about learning. He loves to share, with enthusiasm, all about the cool things they learned each day. He has made wonderful friends and is surrounded by talented, caring, creative, and fun staff members. These are definitely memories and experiences my son will never forget! This makes me so happy. I cannot thank CA enough for being such an important part of my son’s life.” - Maureen, CA Parent “Our three youth, ages 11, 12, and 15 attend Cupola Academy. We'd recommend CA because of the intellectually stimulating and genuinely pro-social environment. We also value highly the opportunity to connect with like-minded families who are invested in Partnership Education. We place a lot of value on raising youth who are socially conscious, contributing members of society. The fact that all CA facilitators and eligible youth are vaccinated against COVID-19 supports the value we place on respecting and protecting our broader community.” - Emily, CA Parent

Philadelphia serial child s*x offender Howard Rubin aka "Philly Hip Hop Cop" pleads guilty to molesting underage boys while working security at various Philadelphia area youth programs and schools. Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney Sanhita Sen of our Special Investigations Unit (SIU) helped secure justice recently in a case involving a former school security officer, Howard Rubin, who pleaded guilty to s*xually abusing two juveniles in 2013. The defendant was arrested and charged in 2020. Evidence included two incriminating Mirandized statements he made to law enforcement, phone records and text messages, prison calls, a string of other misconduct allegations from various sources, a lengthy trail of court documents indicating how the defendant used the justice system against young men to perpetuate his predatory behavior, in addition to statements from the two survivors. ADA Sen believes, based on the obtained text messages and admissions from the defendant himself, that the defendant has inflicted harm on other youth as well. Others who have been victimized by this defendant are strongly encouraged to contact the SIU: [email protected] or 215-686-9608. He is scheduled for sentencing before the Hon. Zachary Shaffer in January 2022.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Red Brick Committee Hosts Gilberto Gonzalez Launch Party for Political Office Exploratory Committee Philadelphia, Saturday, July 28, 2021- Red Brick Committee announces the first Launch Party for Gilberto Gonzalez as he explores a run for political office, backed by a coalition of grassroots community activists. The event will be held at Half-Times Good Times, 120 Diamond Street Philadelphia PA 19122, beginning at 7:00 p.m. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Gonzalez has a long history of activism and is committed to making a positive, measurable difference for the people who live in the city he loves. With challenges including deep poverty, addiction and gun violence worsening, Gonzalez and his team are committed to being an authentic voice representing the citizens of Philadelphia, the state and the nation. Gonzalez joins a movement of activists who aim to shake up the political status quo. “We have the opportunity to change the policies and laws as well as the leadership that has failed us, '' said Gonzalez. “We will craft innovative legislation to move Philadelphia from the poorest of America’s large cities to a city of growth and prosperity, and a place where people living in addiction, poverty and non-violent offenders have a chance at a better life.” Dr. Martin Luther King said “A social movement that only moves people is merely a revolt. A movement that changes both people and institutions is a revolution.” Gonzalez and his coalition believe change is possible and now is the time for new leadership and innovation. Gonzalez said, “Philadelphia has the potential of lifting up the lives of its citizens to become an example for the rest of the nation. “A New Voice in Politics. Yours!” Contact: Donnell Casey, Campaign Manager and Red Brick Executive Director at 267-824-2240 [email protected] or [email protected]
