CENTER CITY (WTXF) - The city of Philadelphia worked to help the community get free money for college Tuesday morning. On Tuesday morning the city, along with Fox 29, hosted a phone-a-thon to answer all your questions about the FAFSA application.
That’s the federal form you must fill out to be eligible for financial aid for college.
Financial aid is available and the city wants to help you find it. The phone-a-thon helped serve more than 500 people Tuesday!
But even after today’s phone-a-thon ended, the campaign continues. It will help Philadelphians keep up to date with local activities and events for FAFSA support and technical assistance.
It's estimated that at least 500 people were helped on the lines today.
