Mutual Aid Philly

Mutual Aid Philly is an entirely volunteer run, community powered group that provides direct aid, neighbor to neighbor, in South Philly and Center City in English and Spanish. The group was created to provide support in response to COVID-19 and prioritizes outreach to groups most affected by the health and economic impacts of the pandemic. We primarily focus on disabled and chronically ill, undocumented, people of color, LGBTQ, and low-income individuals and families.

Volunteers are essential to our work. Volunteers help with supply runs, donations, making masks, preparing meals, transportation, and emotional support. If you’d like to volunteer with us, sign up below.


Our most pressing need is donations to help us offer financial assistance and pay for the items our community members need. All donations go directly to community members. We keep a public spreadsheet of transactions for transparency. You can donate on Venmo (search @mutualaidphl) or Open Collective.
