April 25th was Comcast Cares day nationwide and in Frankford it impacted the Boys and Girls Club on Kinsey Street with over 250 volunteers. Joe Marziello, one half of the CEO team (the other half being his wife Lizabeth) of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Philadelphia sees this is the start of a multi-year project that will make the facility something that the entire community will be proud of.
Also on hand was Josh Temple of the DIY Network show “House Crashers“.
There was painting, clearing, planting and rewiring of the computer room for a start. Marziello has a strategic plan for the improvements will likely take a few years subject to funding.
The Boys and Girls Club has become increasingly important to Frankford since the Salvation Army and PAL have both left Frankford taking their recreational activities with them.
