Thanks to everyone who came out to our inaugural Community Service Networking Breakfast!
Representatives from City Year, Earth Force, Philadelphia University, Arcadia University, Covenant House of PA, and the Awbury Neighbors Association met at Awbury Arboretum to network and learn about volunteer opportunities. Attendees enjoyed learning about volunteer opportunities and networking with people across their watershed.
After mingling with each other and enjoying breakfast, attendees were welcomed by Julie Slavet, TTF’s Executive Director, and Beth Miner, Awbury’s Manager of Outreach and Community Engagement. Cindy Rubino, the Coordinator of Community Service at Arcadia University, described the history of TTF-Arcadia partnerships and suggested ways for other organizations to collaborate with TTF. Ashley Schmid, Education and Outreach Coordinator at TTF, discussed our current work in the community and how volunteers or interns will be able to get involved. Afterwards, attendees enjoyed a tour of Awbury Arboretum’s stormwater management features.
