On Saturday, July 20, 2019. DonCARES Founder and Executive Director Donovan Forrest gifted longtime DonCARES Mentor and youth advocate Joel Corpening with a certificate of appreciation and a $25.00 WaWa Gift Card. Corpening has been a member of DonCARES of Philadelphia, Inc. since 2017 and has since been a wonderful addition to the team.
Forrest describes Corpening as: "a level-headed scholar and youth advocate with a passion for helping people in all aspects of life." Forrest expressed the need for more positive male role-models of color in Philadelphia and expressed that Corpening provided just that. Corpening is a Senior in the Fox School of Business studying Finance and will graduate from Temple University in May 2020.
