The InterCommunal Giveback Feast & Concert is an annual year-end FREE event that travels each year to different under-served Philadelphia communities, offering a hot meal, gently-used clothing, non-perishable food items, and an evening of entertainment for community members.
“During Election Day on Nov. 6, voters will be able to donate canned goods and gently used clothes at several polling sites in West and Southwest Philadelphia locations, thanks to the group Mic Check 1-Two.
Latiaynna Tabb joined Lana Adams to form Mic Check 1-Two last year. They have held benefit concerts with other local groups in an effort to create places where those in less fortunate circumstances could receive free meals and clothing. Last year an estimated 400 people were fed during one of their events.
“Of course we decided to do it again, and this year we wanted to engage more community members as citizens,” Tabb said. “This is a huge election year and we thought that engaging those who are already committed to national change would be the best way to get them to work toward local change.”
Putting donation drop boxes at local polling stations was conceived as a way to accomplish this initiative, according Tabb.

Philadelphia voters and community members look for Donation Drop Boxes for canned good and clothing collection at select polling places and small businesses.
On Saturday. March 10, 2012, Mic Check 1-Two! held a prom dress drive for young women in their senior year of high school who were not financially able to afford a prom dress. We wanted to make sure these young, deserving women would be able to participate in one of the most exciting days of their youth and had a chance to feel like the royalty they are.
We have so many dresses left that we decided to help even more girls by holding another drive on APRIL 21, 2012 FROM 12PM-3PM AT “THE DREAMING BUILDING”, 618 N. FRONT ST, PHILADELPHIA, PA 19123. If you know a young girl in need of a prom dress, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with her name, school and her contact information. If you have dresses, shoes, or accessories that you would like to donate, send us an email and we’ll arrange a pick-up! Thank You!

We have also selected another deserving, young queen as our winner for our ROYAL PROM TREATMENT contest. This young woman will have her prom dress custom-made, AND her hair, and make-up done for her prom. Stay tuned for the documentary featuring our winner, Michelle Harris from Frankford high school. She is a beautiful young lady with a touching story and a wonderful spirit.
