As we were trying to figure out how to send some kids from our community to see the Black Panther Movie for free , Desiree Peterkin Bell stepped up to the plate to sponsor 60 kids from the community to see Black Panther on Thursday night.We thank you for this and we look forward to hanging out with the students on Thursday Night. With all the negativity on social media and in the world , I think its very important that we show the students positive images of African Americans.

    Ditch the Dilly Dilly for a local beer with Philly style - Philly
    The question should not be "where can I get my free Bud Light for the parade?" Any self-respecting, brew-thirsty Philadelphian should ask instead: "Why would I ever drink that weak yellow water?" (Insert Tina Fey's Betsy Ross "wooder" for full effect.)

South Philly brothers tackle the Eagles' dirty laundry | We the People

For 18 years, the Eagles have had their uniforms cleaned and cared for at the business the Lattanzio brothers’ father started in 1947, Lattanzio’s Linn Cleaners, which moved from Linn Street to the 2100 block of South 15th Street in 1953.

    South Philly brothers tackle the Eagles' dirty laundry | We the People
    In the back of Joe and Vince Lattanzio's South Philly dry cleaning business, past the delicately beaded theater costumes, the leather pants and the rusted Maxwell House cans filled with 70 years worth of buttons, hang the most popular uniforms in the city - those of the Philadelphia Eagles.

    Philadelphian brings more 'Unity in the Community' during the holidays with NBA's Ben Simmons
    South Philly native, Anton Moore, and the NBA's and Philadelphia 76ers' rising star, Ben Simmons, connected recently to assist those in need and spread some holiday cheer. "We worked on this for three weeks and we had to keep it a secret from the families until the day of the event," Moore said of the four families taken on a "surprise shopping spree at Target."

We would like to give a big thank you to the Philadelphia 76'ers, Amy Heaver, and Ben Simmons, for partnering with my organization @unityinthecommunity to take four families from our community on a surprise shopping spree at Target today.We worked on this for three weeks and we had to keep it a secret from the families until the day of the event. The look on the families faces was priceless.Each family was able to spend close to $1500.00 each. Thank you to each and every person that nominated a family for our Operation Holiday Help Initiative. We appreciate it so much. One down, One to go! #Gameon

For the 8th year in the row, we were able to surprise six families from our community with our Operation Holiday Help Initiative, despite the rain. It was easy for someone not to show up because of the rain, but people still showed up to show their commitment to our community. We would like to give a big thank you to each and every sponsor that participated in this initiative and of course the residents that nominated these families and made us aware of their hardship.In addition to that, Thank you to Mayor Kenney and his team for making this event a success.The families really appreciated it so much. @ Down South Philly

    South Philly building gets nod for National Register of Historic Places
    The future of the former Frankford Chocolate Factory may be unknown, but its past and its architectural character were enough to earn it a timeless spot on the National Register of Historic Places. And that could provide just the stimulus the building needs to reinvigorate its on-again, off-again redevelopment efforts.

    Give pizza to the homeless in West Philly and South Philly
    Every first Sunday since 2016, the loose coalition of do-gooders under the name "PMA Bike Ride" has been gathering to buy pizza at local shops and hand it out to people on the street. This weekend is no different - and you don't need a bike to participate.
