From Manny Citron of PhillyRising:
PhillyRising is working with a team of volunteers from the AmeriCorps to do some clean up work around the city. The National Civilian Community Corps (NCCC) is a nation wide Americorps program that has teams working across the US. The City of Philadelphia is hosting a 9-person NCCC crew for an an eight week work rotation assisting with projects in PhillyRising neighborhoods across the city. A few weeks ago they built a community garden in Swampoodle. Last week they were cleaning out back alleys in Point Breeze. This week they are working in Frankford.
Here are some photos of the clean up work that has been performed at Overington Park and the work that was done on the 1700 block of Foulkrod Street with a work crew from the City’s Community Service Program. The last set is of a cleanup at 4735 Duffield Street.
