Pope-Up Day in Center City

Feeling like giving back while getting into the spirit for the pope's visit? Project HOME will be stationed with cardboard cutouts of Pope Francis at three Center City locations. You can snap a selfie with the pope and learn more about the Francis Fund and other charities designed to help Philadelphia's poor. There are options to donate, but it is not required. Bonus: Sister Mary Scullion will be at the 18th and Walnut location.

Where: 18th and Walnut streets, 17th and Chestnut streets and LOVE Park

When: August 12, 2015 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
