South Philly Clean Up Day

Looking for a way to give back to your city? Want to get up early on a Saturday morning and be productive? This
might be something for you to check out…

Philadelphia, PA, August 19th, 2006, 8:00AM

Philadelphia Young Democrats is helping to organize the biggest neighborhood clean up in the recent history of South Philadelphia. The 17th Police District in South Philadelphia has had the highest level of homicides in our City. According to the broken glass theory, many unaddressed quality of life factors, such as dirty streets, help to contribute to the tragic homicide rate. So, in concert with the South Philadelphia Neighborhood Networks, the Philadelphia More Beautiful Committee, Block Captains from the 17th Police District, Universal Companies, South Philadelphia Block Association, the Greater Philadelphia Church of Christ, Hope Worldwide Philadelphia, Point Breeze Community Development Coalition and the City of Philadelphia, PYD is making a difference.

We’ll be cleaning out vacant lots, planting trees, painting, sweeping, etc. The cleanup will be at 1700 Reed Street at 8am on Saturday August 19th. Contact the organizer: Damon Roberts for more information.
