I'm looking to organize a small-scale clean-up for the Southwest Philadelphia neighborhood between 65th and 72nd Sts. and Grays and Paschall Aves on Saturday, July 21st (9-11 AM). As some of you know this neighborhood has problems with both litter and illegal dumping, which is especially pronounced along the Northeast Corridor train tracks that run through this community. Some of the spots that need the most attention are the pocket park at 72nd and Paschall and the blocks by Bartram HS around 66th and Glenmore. Unfortunately, this community has been forgotten about for far too long.
Is anyone here interested in volunteering for the clean-up. Would any of you be willing to help spread the word about it?
If the answer is yes to either question, please reply on here, shoot me a PM, or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By the way, I do realize this is not about West Philly or University City. It's the best place I could find to include a Southwest Philly thread.
