Mark your calendars and plan to join Need in Deed on Thursday, December 12, 2019, as we celebrate the unique partnership that brings the transformative power of service-learning to students in Philadelphia’s public schools.

It will be an occasion for food, fun, games, and entertainment as we take time out to honor the teachers of the Philadelphia School District and the individuals from the city’s public agencies, nonprofits, and other institutions who partner with Need in Deed to connect the classroom with the community.

Check your mailbox and email inbox in September for information about individual and group tickets.

To be a Soirée sponsor or in-kind contributor, please contact Lisa Johns at 215.964.9020, ext. 11, or

We thank Ballard Spahr for so generously opening its doors to the Need in Deed community for this event.
