Thank you!

On behalf of the CCRA Board of Directors and staff, we would like to thank you for the tremendous success of our winter sidewalk appeal.  With your help, CCRA has raised over $13,000 to meet our goal of $11,000.  (Please note that funds over goal are reserved for continued sidewalk cleaning.) 

We look forward to continuing to play a part in keeping the neighborhood beautiful for CCRA members, friends, and tourists. We could not have been successful without your support.   We are almost speechless at the magnitude of your generosity. We are grateful to all of our contributors!

The Albert M. Greenfield Home & School Association Annual Drive 
 
As many of CCRA's members know, the Greenfield School is one of the bedrock institutions of our community. Originally founded in 1954 as a result of CCRA's lobbying efforts, Greenfield is consistently ranked as one of Philadelphia's top elementary schools. 
 
Presently, Greenfield's Home and School Association is in the midst of its annual drive. From after school activities to special education initiatives, Greenfield's HSA supports a variety of programs that enrich its students' education. During this holiday season, please consider making a donation to support their efforts.
