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 deductable as EPX is a 501(c)(3) exempt charitable organization! Donations may also be made at the November and December General Membership meetings or through the Paypal link on this website.EPX donations start, each year, with a gift to a local area food bank. The Philadelphia Access Center (PAC) at 11th & Mifflin Streets supplies turkeys to over a dozen neighbors in our area and EPX provides the rest of their Thanksgiving dinner.  Everything from salad to cranberry sauce, stuffing to green beans, mashed potatoes to gravy…and more.  The hard work of gathering donations, shopping and delivering these items falls to our Treasurer Millie Ruffino, our Recording Secretary Jo Cardillo and Marketing/Events Chair Pat Pitt.  Let’s give these ladies a great big round of applause!!!
