EPX RW

The EPX Education Committee will be holding its first Volunteer Day at Southwark Elementary School on Wednesday, February 6th from 8:00 am until noon. We will be moving some furniture and organizing the auditorium and a teacher resource room, and also sprucing up some bulletin boards in both areas. If you can volunteer some time that morning to join us (even an hour anytime during the morning would be great), please email the Committee Chair, Beth Dougherty, at education@epcrossing.org.

In honor of the holiday season, QOTA will be collecting gift cards to grocery, toy and pharmacy stores. Any amount is appreciated and they will be distributed to local needy families through EPX’s “Holiday Giving” program.

Join QOTA on Tuesday December 18th from 6-9 p.m. at Birra 1700 East Passyunk Avenue. Birra has quickly earned a spot as an Avenue favorite for serving up what might just be some of the best pizza on this side of the Atlantic. Complimentary lite fare and drink specials will be served.

Hope to see you there!
