For what I swear has been at least the last 3 months, I've been seeing these guys wearing Hogar Crea tee shirts trying to collect money on all 4 corners at Bustleton and Cottman. They're there at least once a week, sometimes more.
For the last couple of days, I've seen them not only at the Bustleton spot, but also now collecting at Cottman and the boulevard.
Since these guys look kinda shady, and there's no signage at all telling you what Hogar Crea is, I looked them up. Apparently it's some non government funded drug rehab place with the closest one being on E. Cumberland st.

Anyone ever hear of them before?
Why are they here?
