7000 down, 3000 to go:
The Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee, or PHLDNC, needs about 10,000 volunteers for the four-day event, executive director Kevin Washo said Wednesday during Visit Philadelphia’s New Year’s breakfast. That’s about the same amount required for Pope Francis’ visit last September.
About 7,000 people have already registered to volunteer, Washo said.
