15 Aug Hope Partnership for Education Hosts Community Day for Neighbors in Fair Hill
On Saturday July 22, 2017, Hope Partnership for Education hosted its neighbors with its 2nd Annual Community Day presented in partnership with the Fairhill PAL and sponsored by Wawa, Fresh Grocer, ShopRite and Wellshire Farms. This free event brought together members of the community to celebrate the talents of our neighborhood children and teens, and to highlight Hope’s programs. The event featured a resource fair featuring local organizations and youth-focused programs.
Other goals for Community Day include raising visibility and clarifying the scope of services Hope offers to the Fair Hill neighborhood, as well as inviting neighbors to send their children to Hope’s middle school and apply themselves for the adult basic education and GED preparation programs.
The event also featured drumming by Music Over Matter, Information tables by APM, The Village of Arts and Humanities and Pathways, live entertainment and DJ, professional youth dancing, face painting, free hotdogs, drinks and water ice, and demonstrations by the Philadelphia Police Department, Fire Department, and SWAT Team
We were pleased to have Council President Darrell Clarke in attendance, as well as representatives from the offices of State Senator Shariff Street and State Representative W. Curtis Thomas.
