PHILADELPHIA STAND DOWN
Now through the month of August we’ll be collecting for Philadelphia Stand Down, a group that supports veterans in need of meals, shelter, medical, clothing and more. See the offering envelopes in the Narthex of church, or mark your check “Stand Down”.

THANK YOU to everyone who came out to the show their support! We asked and answered VERY important questions about the future of Northeast Philadelphia and provided ways for us to improve not only the preservation of building, but the education of our children, our community, and our history.

The event was historic because every single historical society, civic association, community organization, politicians, teachers, business owners, and residents were present. It’s not every day that everyone is in the same room, and we have to make this happen more often! One of the main questions was how can we continue to collaborate on everything?

Well, we have created a public forum called “Northeast Philly History Collaboration” for us to discuss everything on a wonderful web platform called Slack. So click here to create an account with your email, and let the collaboration begin!

If you’d like to see pictures from last night’s event, they are in a Facebook album – just click here.

In the meantime, we have started to formulate a plan to bring an official Northeast Philadelphia bus tour underway. So please join Slack to discuss under the room tag #bustour
