Help us provide 25 local families with a Thanksgiving Dinner
Councilman Mark Squilla’s office has generously donated 25 turkeys to help launch our campaign to provide 25 local families with a Thanksgiving dinner. We’re committed to raising $800 over the next few days to so that the families have a complete meal. Please consider donating towards our cause – any amount will help!
Each family will receive a full meal including, turkey, gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, shell pasta and cheese, string beans, peas, corn, candied yams, corn, cranberry sauce, apple sauce, desserts and more.
Please note that we are raising funds to purchase the items rather than asking for canned-good donations.
Every contribution counts. Please consider donating today.
EPX will be assembling the bagged meals Tuesday, November 20 from 6:00pm-7:30pm at the East Passyunk Community Center. We will be distributing the bagged meals to confirmed families from 7:30pm-9pm at the East Passyunk Community Center.
If you’re interested in volunteering in any capacity, or if you have a friend or neighbor struggling this season who could benefit from a Thanksgiving meal, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us for our General Membership Meeting on Monday, March 5th at 7pm at the East Passyunk Community Center, located at 1025 Mifflin Street. The agenda includes updates on our community initiatives, as well as a presentation by the Philadelphia Water Department with a brief on the projects and street closures in East Passyunk Crossing.
This meeting is free and open to all neighbors. You can become a member of EPX if you live 6th to Broad, Tasker to Snyder. Hope to see you there!

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!
