Liacouras Walk, Philadelphia, PA, United States & 1725 W Berks Street

TU Project Haiti will be hosting a late night Grilled Cheese Fundraiser! $2 buys you a delicious grilled cheese sandwich and a chance to support the St. Francis Xavier Orphanage!


How Can You Help!

1. Ask your local grocery store, friend, and family to donate grilled cheese making supplies, specifically, cheese, bread, and butter! We would also like to have drinks and/or baked goods to sell, so you can ask for them to be donated as well! Check out the sample donation letter below and send it on to anyone who may be interested in donating supplies. Email tuproject.haiti@temple.edu when you receive any donations.


2. Work the event! We are hoping to have two locations for this event, Liacouras Walk (across from 1940) and on Bouvier and Berks Streets. For us to have both locations, we need volunteers to man the tables from 10:30am-3am. Fill out the form below to sign up for a time slot.


3. Spread the word! Invite you friends to the Facebook group and share the flyer below with everyone you know!
