“BLOCS is an incredible organization that makes an impact on the lives of so many children in the Philadelphia region by connecting them with the resources they need to receive a high quality Catholic education. Despite some of the challenges they have faced in their lives, the children BLOCS has supported throughout the years have been awarded the opportunity to flourish in a strong values-based educational system where they reap the benefits of a Catholic education and build a solid foundation for a successful future,” quotes Brian Markley.
