The SOSNA Community Outreach & Partnerships Committee is collecting hats, gloves and scarves for our local elementary schools; help keep our neighborhood kids warm this winter and bring a new item to the Holiday Party or the SOSNA office before December 22nd.

The Leaf Collection and Recycling Program is one of several services provided by the Streets Department to honor the City's on-going commitment to recycling. This recycling program helps to reduce the amount of materials that reach the waste stream and saves landfill space. SOSNA's closest drop-off location is Broad and Christian Streets. All leaves must be in biodegradable brown bags. For all the details, click here.
Our friends at Philly Foodworks have a great offer - sign up for their CSA and if you input "SOSNA" (all caps) as the coupon code, they will donate $10 back to SOSNA to support our great projects like Carpenter Green!! If you joined a SOSNA Soup Group what better way to get fresh, local ingredients for your soup creations!
Please take a minute to fill out this survey about the O'Connor swimming pool at 26th and South. What types of improvements would you like to see over the next few summers?
