Denalla James of Hyde Park, MD was awarded the Kennie L. Phillips Scholarship by Phillips Charitable to give her son, Willard, the opportunity to continue his college education at St. John’s University. Phillips Charitable is dedicated to providing assistance to people like James who need expedited financial aid during a time of need.
Denalla James is a single mother living in Hyde Park who had been struggling to make ends meet. While in between jobs, James was having trouble keeping up with her mortgage payments as well as tuition payments for her son’s education at St. John’s University. With the help of her daughter, a law student who had a connection with one of PCO’s board members, James was able to contact Phillips Charitable to get the help she needs.
PCO addressed Ms. James’ situation right away and was honored to award her and her son with the Kennie L. Phillips Scholarship. Kennie L. Phillips was an Atlanta-based minister who passed away in April of 2008. He was described as being a loving husband and father, as well as an influential community leader in the Atlanta area.
PCO, or the Phillips Charitable Organizations, was founded by Charles and Karen Phillips along with two other lifelong friends. The founders decided to create PCO after experiencing other charitable organizations taking a long amount of time to distribute funds to the needy. PCO was founded based on the principle that those in need may require help right away. Therefore, PCO often grants assistance within a 48-hour period.
PCO is dedicated to providing aid in a timely fashion to single parents, disadvantaged students who show an interested in the field of engineering and wounded veterans. For more information on Phillips Charitable or to find out how you can donate, please visit http://www.Phillipscharitable.org.
