JACKSONopoly was a huge success! We had a wonderful night. Over 100 guests attended and danced the night away as we raised funds for Jackson. We were honored to have Mayor Jim Kenney and Councilman Mark Squilla attend.

We netted over $18,000.00 for Andrew Jackson Elementary.  A number of projects being considered include providing STEAM curriculum/materials, anti-bully programming, and providing much-needed resources for the classrooms.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors, donors, friends and supporters. Jackson is a great school thanks to all the dedicated volunteers, teachers, students, and folks committed to providing quality public education for our students.

Interested in learning more about the neighborhood’s green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) and how you can help keep the installations eye-catching and effective at maintaining clean water?

PSCA continues its partnership with the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD) through a team of GSI Ambassadors, who are trained on how the stormwater management installations function and how to identify issues and report problems –  tasks which can be completed onsite while you walk your dog or take the stroller around the neighborhood!

Learn more about the benefits of green stormwater infrastructure and the team of GSI Ambassadors by joining us for a drink at Devils Den (1148 S. 11th St.) on Wednesday, March 18, at 6:30 pm or by emailing stormwater@passyunk.org.

You can read more about PWD’s innovative Green Cities, Clean Waters initiative at their website.
