Why Girl Scout Cookies?

The activity of selling cookies is directly related to the Girl Scouts of America’s purpose of helping all girls realize their full potential and become strong, confident, and resourceful citizens.

* Girl Scouts practice life skills like goal setting, money management, and teamwork—and they have fun!
* Customers get a great product and get to support girls in their own community.
* All of the proceeds support Girl Scouting in the local community.

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!

Giving Thanks! Each year, at this time, the Board of EPX through the generosity of our membership and area businesses, works to complete our annual charitable giving campaign!  Donations are tax deductible as EPX is a 501(c)(3) exempt charitable organization! Donations may also be made at the December General Membership meeting or through the Paypal link below. EPX donations this year started by identifying needy families from local Catholic parishes and Southwark Elementary School.

East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association (EPX) will move its meeting and office space staring on June 4, 2013.  EPX will now be housed on the third floor of the main school building of Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School in a suite of former offices and classrooms. New signage and accommodations will be made to access the suite via elevator. In addition, the EPX Community Garden will continue to be planted on schools grounds and serve as a boon to neighbors and charities in the area.  The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has chosen Ss. Neumann-Goretti High as one of their pilot programs for a Catholic exchange students initiative and they will reside in the former EPX Center. EPX is happy to support the school’s venture into this new educational paradigm. Education is at the forefront of EPX’s civic agenda and stronger schools make for better neighborhoods!
