We had a great day at yesterday’s 7th Annual Philly Spring Cleanup!

We partnered with the Eagles Youth Partnership, The Dow Chemical Company, and Keep America Beautiful to paint, remove graffiti, and clean up five vacant lots around Gideon School in the Strawberry Mansion neighborhood. Gideon took part in the Eagles Youth Partnership’s Playground Build Program ten years ago, and we were thrilled to be a part of keeping the playground clean and green.

Check out pictures from yesterday here – and see if you can spot new Keep America Beautiful President and CEO Jennifer Jehn and Eagles Linebacker Connor Barwin, who we were so honored to have join us for our day of service.

Our thanks to the Eagles Youth Partnership, Gideon School, Keep America Beautiful, and the Philadelphia Streets Department – and to Mayor Michael Nutter for starting his day with us!

We also want to extend our many, many thanks to Dow Chemical and McCormick Paints for their generous donation of 1000 gallons of paint to the Philly Spring Cleanup effort!

After yesterday, we know we’re energized and ready to Keep Up the Sweep Up!
