The Northwood Civic meeting last night was attended by about 30 people who had heard about the Volunteers of America house becoming occupied on Christmas Eve. NEastPhilly.com did a great job of covering that angle and you can read their report and see the video here.
The former location of the Thrifty Scott beer distributor on Castor Avenue near Wingohocking is under construction. Possible tenants for the building are a dialysis center that would move over from the Cancer Treatment Center. Another potential tenant is looking at the facility. Both will make a presentation to the Civic with details of their plans.

I kinda heard something about the cancer center not really living up to their community agreement, but I’m definitely in favor of any business that wants to expand around there. They should buy that mini shopping center while they’re at it.
Re: the Cancer Center not really living up to their community agreement: I heard that some people are upset because the cancer center did not hire people from the Northwood community. How can you dictate to a company to hire from a certain community? And Northwood is a small community. It’s my understanding that the cancer center did hire many people from the 19124 zip code.
