Thanks to your generous donations we were able to raise over $1,000 and purchase gifts for teens to be distributed by United Communities Southeast Philadelphia. Thank you as well to the fifteen volunteers who showed up to wrap the gifts! You all made a real impact in our community. EPX is a non-profit 501c3 charitable organization, and you can donate at any time to our general fund.
If you are interested in helping EPX, we are looking for volunteers to work our upcoming Saturday January 4th Treecycling event at Capitolo. Note the new location as Columbus is under construction. Sign up for a half hour shift here, or contact us directly. All are welcome – this is a very fun neighborhood event (See the Instagram post from previous year.)
If you are bringing a tree to be shredded, there is a suggested donation of $5. More information about the event can be found on the Facebook event.
Zoning meetings are moving to a new date – from now on meetings will be held on the second Monday of the month, still at 7pm in the great room at the East Passyunk Community Center. The next meeting will be Monday January 13th. There will be a presentation to provide an overall update on the BOK building and to discuss future projects, including: Auditorium Renovation, Events Space – Cafeteria 6th Floor, Girls Gym, and 6/7 Floors. We highly encourage you to attend to both learn more about the current plans, and to ask any questions / voice any concerns you may have.
