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.

Bring your new or “gently used” winter coat(s) to the EPX offices, Neumann-Goretti High School Room 217 on SATURDAY January 11, 2014. Drop off anytime between 12-4pm.

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.

Please join us in beautifying our neighborhood on our semi annual Tree Tenders planting event. In partnership with the Philadelphia Horticultural Society we will be planting trees around the neighborhood to help make it more beautiful and environmentally sound. No experience needed! We will provide some brief training prior to the event, break out into groups and plant some trees. There will be a TBD after party when the event is over.
