We love our hometown. Not just for the fantastic real estate market, either.
Philly is one of the most historically-rich areas in the U.S., and even boasts the oldest residential street in our nation. We want to help with the preservation of our city’s captivating history and modern-day draw. That’s why we’re taking time to do our part in our beloved neighborhood of Fishtown.
The JGRE crew is now devoting two afternoons a month to clean up the littered areas around our office. Every other Thursday afternoon around 3pm, we’ll be on Frankford Ave with our trash bags and gloves (that we feel super cool in), cleaning up the surrounding litter. After kicking this off last week, we’ve already heard a positive response from local homeowners, who are glad to have some more power in their corner to tackle this all-too-familiar problem that Philadelphians face. Litter on our streets is an overwhelming issue, and is impossible to handle alone. This is why we want to extend an invitation, and encourage the notion that we can make a difference if we work together.
We would love to see other local businesses volunteer– even if you’re not local to Fishtown. The more neighborhoods, the better!
Please join us next Thursday afternoon (11/3), and every other Thursday thereafter, at the intersection of Frankford and Girard, in our humble efforts to keep Philly beautiful– There might even be a post-cleanup donut waiting for you!
