New Clean & Green Chairs Are Busy!

New Clean & Green Chairs, Amanda Bauman and Sarah Stevenson have been busy, busy, busy since taking the reins in February. Here's just some of what they and the committee have been up to:  

  • They teamed up to visit groups of neighbors participating in the Citywide Cleanup, offering donuts and coffee and spreading the word about EPBN's programs.  
  • They made circular-Free Philly registration forms available and over 30 applications were mailed in on neighbors' behalf.
  • They partnered with the Travis Manion Foundation and students from St. Joe's Prep to plant street trees all over the neighborhood. 

Great job, Amanda and Sarah! If you'd like to help them with their cleaning and greening efforts, get in touch with them and clean@epbneighbors.org.
