Point Breeze pioneer

Talk about a Difference Maker, Etrulia (Trudy) Gay has been making difference in the lives of Point Breeze’s children for decades. And it may have all started with an Easter Egg Hunt at Wharton Square, 2300 Wharton St., about 29 years ago.

Gay has been in South Philly her whole life with a brief jump north. 27th and South, 24th and Naudain, 21st and Naudain, she rattled off a few intersections she’s called home. And as a sibling to nine sisters and one brother, her nurturing nature started early.

Starting forward

Simmons also coordinates a book bag giveaway at Jefferson Square. But the generosity doesn’t stop at Courtyard. He extends many of these events to Point Breeze, where his business, 22nd St. Cafe, 22nd and Wharton streets, is located.

The 45-year-old led South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad St., to a Public League championship in 1986, is the NCAA’s No. 3 all-time leading scorer from his time at LaSalle University and was drafted seventh overall in 1990 by the Sacramento Kings.

But out of the spotlight ever since his rookie NBA season, Simmons has given back to Courtyard Apartments, 1021 S. Fourth St., which now stands in place of Southwark Plaza, the projects where he grew up.

Simmons - known in the neighborhood as “Train” - throws the children a Halloween party each year. This year’s will feature a scavenger hunt at Jefferson Square Park, 300 Washington Ave.

He also stuffs a truck full of Thanksgiving turkeys that go to residents and designs a catered dinner for seniors. He follows that with a holiday toy drive for the less fortunate through Phillips Temple Christian Methodist Church, 754 S. Third St.

“He’s up all night sorting and separating that stuff,” Saunders, of 23rd Street and West Passyunk Avenue, said. “It’s unbelievable, and he delivers. I watched it last year with tears in my eyes. Who still does that?”

“They see him, and it’s kind of inspiring,” Shane Scruggs, of Broad Street and Pattison Avenue, who coordinates Simmons events, said. “They were like, ‘Oh, my God. He played in the NBA.’”
