Please Consider Donating to the Winter Neighborhood Beautification 
As part of your year-end giving, please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to CCRA so that we can continue to carry out our Sidewalk Cleaning Program for another year.  

The Neighborhood Beautification Campaign supports many initiatives - tree planting, historic preservation, the Schuylkill River Park Community Garden, oversight of neighborhood development and - last but not least - sidewalk cleaning. 
Our neighborhood continues to be among the cleanest in the city, and that is because of YOU! Please help us keep our neighborhood clean with a generous donation this season.
Thanks for your support of CCRA and happy holidays to you and your family.
