Adopt a Center
The Adopt-a-Center Program was developed to support growth in enrollment and the need to maintain and enhance PAL sports, educational, and cultural programs, as well as our critical mentoring initiatives. Adopt-A-Center support also helps with the maintenance of the facilities that house most of our 18 PAL Centers throughout Philadelphia.
Through an Adopt-a-Center program, organizations or individuals can “adopt” a PAL Center to ensure PAL can continue, enhance, and expand existing operations in centers that provide the safe havens that 18,000 children benefit from annually.
