Biden Receives Atlas Award, Cherry Hill Mall Power Outage, DNC Homeless Transitioning

Vice President Joe Biden was honored in Philadelphia Wednesday night for his work trying to find a cure for cancer. The Vice President lost his son, Beau, to cancer last year, and since then, he's been a man on a mission supporting research. The World Affairs Council recognized his work by presenting him with the Atlas Award. Biden says he's working to bring cancer researchers together so they can share their work and speed up their progress. Biden currently has jurisdiction over every agency in the federal government that has anything dealing with cancer.

The Cherry Hill Mall was evacuated on Wednesday night. Mall officials announced on their website that the evacuation was due to a power outage. The mall closed down for the rest of the evening. It was announced that the mall is expected to reopen on Thursday morning at 10:00 a.m. J.C. Penney, Nordstrom and Macy's were not impacted and remained open for the remainder of the Wednesday night mall hours.

The Democratic National Convention may have been life-changing for many people, perhaps none more than 35 Philadelphians who were homeless and are now transitioning into housing because of stepped up outreach efforts during the event. The city spent $86,000 on 20 additional outreach workers and 100 additional shelter beds. Homeless Services director Liz Hersh says the outreach workers had contact with 600 people and 75 used the respite beds, including four couples, two dogs, a cat and a parakeet (and their owners). Of those, Hersh says, 35 have decided to come off the street. The effort included providing information to visitors through hand cards with tips for helping the homeless. Hersh says the city will continue distributing the cards.
