The CBNC is your volunteer-based non-profit organization that works to meet the needs of the residents living in the 59th Ward 10th Division of Philadelphia, PA.
Take a look at how the CBNC has been working for you in your community:
➢ FREE Math Tutoring Classes for residents age 7 and older. The CBNC has partnered with a Mathematical Engineer and the Math Departments of the Drexel and LaSalle Universities to bring free educational opportunities to the community. To take advantage of this magnificent opportunity, contact the CBNC ASAP to get registered for a January 29, 2011 Assessment Test.
➢ Organizes the cleanup of empty lots, driveways and alleys, as community service projects ensuring a cleaner and safer community.
➢ Distributes ongoing information about city/state/federal and private employment opportunities within our neighborhood and among our neighborhood businesses.
➢ Assists ex-offenders in getting employment.
➢ Established the “Adopt the Children/Young Adults on Our Block” campaign for neighbors to create a safe haven for children on their blocks. This helps to stop bullying and fighting after school.
➢ Organizes block festivals and FREE Family Movie Night Out events.
➢ Collaborates with and has been selected by, the City’s Philadelphia More Beautiful Committee Program as one of Philadelphia’s first models of its Urban Green Initiative.
➢ Working to create a small playground for young children at the Awbury View Apartments located at Chew Avenue and Washington Lane.
➢ Partners with the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership and Awbury Park Association for the planting of trees in our neighborhood.
In order to insure the continuation of these and other important projects, it is important for residents to support the CBNC’s efforts through attendance at community meetings and volunteering your time and talents. Beginning January, 2011 (1/26/2011), community meetings will be held on the last Wednesday of each month, at the Joseph E. Coleman Northwest Regional Library located at: 68 W.
