8th Annual Spring Clean

South Kensington Community Partners

Spring has sprung in South Kensington... and with it the eighth Annual Spring Neighborhood Cleanup!

Participating in a city-wide community improvement program, over 60 South Kensington residents spent this past Saturday properly disposing of litter and illegal dumping in 22 square blocks of South Kensington. Volunteers led by SKCP’s Neighborhood Advisory Subcommittee collected more than 3400 pounds of trash in our largest cleanup event to date. “The difference is just stunning,” said Jeannine Marshall, Facilities Manager at Oxford Mills. “I wish I took pictures before and after!”

After this broad coalition of residents, including Captain George Kappe and 5 of his officers from Philadelphia’s 26th Police District, scoured the neighborhood, volunteers enjoyed a barbecue, live music, and a demonstration of the new Indego bikeshare program.
