The Greater Philadelphia region is a cold place to be during the winter, especially if you do not have a warm coat.
Be part of the Greater Philadelphia Cares 17th Annual Winter Coat Drive.

Last year over 130 businesses, civic groups and individuals collected 6000 new and gently used coats that were distributed throughout the region…and EPX donated 79!

Every year, thousands of men, women, and children in the Greater Philadelphia region live through the cold winter season without a coat to keep warm. You may help provide them with this basic necessity. This event is a reminder that there are thousands of people whose only holiday wish is a warm coat for their children, parents, or themselves.

Bring your new or “gently used” winter coat(s) to the January 6, 2014 EPX General Membership meeting held at the Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School!

The January 2013 EPX Beautification/Environment (Clean and Green) Committee meeting will be held on Monday, January 21 from 7:30pm – 8:30pm at the EPX Center 1729 S. 11th St (Enter at gate north of 11th & Moore St Neumann Goretti High School entrance).

EPX and a few other South Philly civics are joining forces to sponsor a neighborhood Christmas Tree-recycling event on Saturday, January 5th. You can bring your tree (stripped of its lovely decorations & ornaments) to Columbus Square Park (13th & Reed) from 10am – 4pm where it will be turned into wood chips that will be used in public parks & gardens. The cost is only $5 and this earth-friendly act will surely get you onto Santa’s Nice list for 2013!

While the City will pick up trees that are left on the curb on your regular trash night, these trees will not be recycled and will be instead sent to the landfill with other garbage. If you are unable to attend our local Tree recycling event at Columbus Square Park, you may also bring your tree for recycling to the Streets Department’s Citizen Drop-Off Center at 3033 S. 63rd Street from January 7-12 from 8 am – 6 pm, Monday through Saturday.
