Swoop from the Philadelphia Eagles even joined the celebration! Check out more photos here.
Philadelphia welcomed over 20 coordinators and volunteers in September at the Coordinator Convention. Coordinators met to discuss best practices, fundraising ideas, volunteer recruitment strategies and stories of smiles.
Case for Smiles has been selected to be one of three Philadelphia Eagles 2017 Care Partners.
