Thank-you to all those who were able to make it out last night for our Community Engagement Forum hosted at Christ Church Neighborhood House. If you were unable to make it out, or just want to relive the celebration, check out the highlights!
The Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance joined forces with PECO, the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, the Department of Parks and Recreation, and Philly Rising to host a service day at Martin Luther King Jr. Recreation Center in North Philadelphia.
In the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance’s invites you to attend GroundSwell Presents: A Community Engagement Forum on Thursday, January 22, at Christ Church Neighborhood House (20 N. American Street) from 3:00 – 6:30PM to highlight the work that cultural organizations are doing in communities across the region.
GroundSwell is committed to making our region a better place to live, work, and play! We keep you informed on civic engagements happening around the city as well as volunteer opportunities. GroundSwell affects change from the ground up, one small action at a time. When you volunteer at a local community arts organization, help to clean up a community park, donate books to your local library, or even just pick up litter around your neighborhood, you are making a real difference and sending a clear message. Pride of place is contagious, and when you show that you care, you inspire others as well.
GroundSwell is committed to bringing you the latest volunteer opportunities across the region. Take action this Monday during the 20th Annual Greater Philadelphia MLK Day of Service. We have curated a list that hopefully leaves you inspired to serve in your community.
The Do-Gooder Spotlight is GroundSwell's blog post spreading the word about individuals and organizations working to better their communities. Today we are giving a shout-out to our friends at Norris Square Neighborhood.
This Wednesday, January 14, GroundSwell and Generocity are getting ready for the January 19 MLK Day of Service with a special Twitter chat to discuss this year's service projects, the importance of community engagement, and more!
