Escape from Poverty
Start Planning your 2021 Escape!
On January 25th, 2020 we held our first “Escape from Poverty” event at Harrisburg Escape Rooms at ABC East.
This event was created to engage the community and inform them of poverty in our area and how they can help Tri County Community Action in our mission to end poverty.
Because of the success of our first event, we will continue to raise awareness for poverty by planning an escape for May of 2021.
To escape, you have to be creative, think 'outside the box', figure out the next step, and do it all under the pressure of the clock. It can be a fun brain teaser, but at the end, you know you'll get to leave, whether you solved the puzzle in time or not.
Families living in poverty need to also be creative; they need to 'think outside the box' to ensure their basic needs are met, and they must do that all while trying to figure out their next step towards self-sufficiency - while under the pressure to get it accomplished in time.
62,695 residents of Cumberland, Dauphin, and Perry Counties are struggling to survive and escape from poverty. Tri County Community Action exists to assist everyone of those 62,695 residents to escape from poverty by providing a pathway to self-sufficiency.
But we need your help, and your support.
By sponsoring and participating in our Escape from Poverty event, you will make a difference. 100% of the proceeds from this event - from your escape - will help our low-income neighbors and friends escape from poverty.
