This year’s Philly Cares Day was a success! This past Saturday, October 22nd, Greater Philadelphia Cares hosted a big volunteer day in Philadelphia, which was held on National Make a Difference Day. In almost 100 schools, community, and recreation centers around the Philadelphia region, volunteers got out to improve the quality of these organizations. The Wynnstay crew and four other groups (Alpha Delta, Pink Knockouts, Oak Lane Lovers, Team Bristow, and Winey Team) gathered in Kensington to help a neighborhood clean up its streets around 2 area schools.
Our event was organized by Vinita Santiago, a community activist concerned about the blight and deterioration of her H Street neighborhood; a place she’s lived for 15 years. Vinita is a great example of one voice, speaking loudly to make a change. She was very grateful for the effort of complete strangers; which is really what community service is all about. Wynnstay strives to challenge our friends and family to help out someone in need – the reward is amazing and everyone benefits!
