Get into the holiday spirit with EPX-Mas! You can enter your house in the contest or enjoy the tour!
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!
Please join us on Monday, December 2nd at 7PM for our next General Membership Meeting. The meeting will be held in the Ss. Neumann-Goretti High School Library (NOTE CHANGE). The special guest speaker will be a representative from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society.
PLEASE NOTE that if you have attended at least two general meetings so far in 2013, you will be eligible to vote for the 2014 EPX Board of Directors if you attend this Monday’s meeting. Please come to the meeting for this important vote! If you have questions about your meeting attendance so far this year, please contact Chris Cozine.
Thanks to all who came out! Here are some pictures from the day. Go team!
