We at Passyunk Square Civic Association are looking for volunteers to canvass our neighborhood in order to meet residents, let them know who we are and get neighbors involved in our activities.
The canvassing will occur on Saturday, September 19. We will meet at the Capitolo Playground building, on 9th Street below Federal Street, at 10:00 AM. We anticipate that the canvassing should end by around 2:00 PM.
If you are interested in helping for one day or know of anyone else who may be, please RSVP on this form to Christine Knapp or Jeff Brown at email@example.com.
Passyunk Square Civic Association is rejuvenating our Neighborhood Ambassador Program (NAP). The NAP is our outreach to homeowners and residents in our neighborhood. Its goals include making neighbors aware of PSCA’s existence and engaging as many of you as possible in our activities.
We are interested in having a Neighborhood Ambassador for each of the many blocks in our community but we need volunteers to do so. We urge you to become involved to help keep our neighborhood safe and clean as well as a great place to live, work and raise your family.
If you or any of your neighbors is interested in becoming a Neighborhood Ambassador, please contact Jeff Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
We hope you will join us tonight at 7:00 pm for our National Night Out neighborhood walk! Details posted here. If you can’t make it to the walk, you can still participate by leaving your front and back exterior house lights on, and sitting outside to greet neighbors!
Columbus Square Park is now on Twitter! Follow Columbus Square Park at @mycolumbussq to stay on top of all the happenings in the Square.
We are seeking homes for the October 17 Home Tour! Preliminary details available here. To volunteer your home for this annual fundraising event or to request more information, email email@example.com.
Volunteers are also always welcome at Passyunk Gardens! Open hours are Sundays, 4-6pm. Did you know that this season we have been able to donate over 40 pounds of tomatoes, not to mention zucchinis, peppers, eggplants and herbs, to community organizations like the Doe Fund and United Communities?
And don’t forget, PSCA monthly general meetings will resume for the year next month, on September 1! Check out the calendar for more events.
Would you like to help keep our neighborhood safe? Would you like to get other neighbors involved in doing so also? Then join us as we participate in a walk through our neighborhood on National Night Out on Tuesday, August 4. National Night Out is an annual community building campaign that promotes community-police partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods a safer and better place to live.
We at Passyunk Square Civic Association need volunteers to join us and walk together through our neighborhood on the evening of August 4, talking to neighbors and distributing information regarding safety and PSCA as well. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jeff Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Experience with Mailchimp, WordPress, Facebook pages, and Google Analytics would be helpful but is not required.

“Don’t Trash on Me” sidewalk art event with Keep Philadelphia Beautiful and Fleisher’s ColorWheels – June 10, 4-6, Capitolo Playground
Help promote litter prevention! Through a generous grant from Keep Philadelphia Beautiful we’ll be working with some local after school programs and Fleisher Art Memorial’s ColorWheels program to create sidewalk art encouraging passers by to use the Big Belly trash and recycling receptacles near Pat’s and Geno’s. Lil’ Pop Shop will be on hand with some free popsicles during the event and the artwork will stay on display into the summer. If you’re not already part of a nearby after school program and you’d like to bring your child to participate, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
