Early Beginnings

IMG_0035_edited_edited.jpg

Gerry Sills and Sandra Blumberg-Beatty co-founded The Do Gooders in 2006. Originally coined “The Angels”, a small group of friends met once a month for lunch. One month Sills suggested that instead of dining at a  restaurant, the group should provide their own lunch and donate the money to charity instead. Blumberg-Beatty suggested that the mission should focus on distressed children and families in the Philadelphia region, and coined the group’s new name as “The Do Gooders”.

 

 

Over the past seventeen years, The Do Gooders has grown to over sixty members. They continue to “do good” for the Philadelphia Community through small grants, donations and volunteer efforts.
