25 years!

Covid-19 updates

In 1995 PAPA was established in spirit of the Million Man March. Today, things look a lot different, but we have not lost our spirit! Our daily routines have changed and summer will be spent closer to home, but that doesn't mean we should give up! With all these changes and uncertainty, PAPA is still trying to maintain some sense of normalcy and continue to fulfill our mission. Celebrating 25 years was intended to look much differently, with celebrations and excitement, not isolation. Our plans may have been shaken up, but COVID CAN'T STOP GOOD!

Show your generosity during this time - whether it's helping a neighbor, advocating for an issue, sharing a skill, or giving to causes, every act of generosity counts. Every dollar donated today will help us continue to provide the programs and activities we are known for once our world heals.

Stay safe,
