I am looking for 25 brothers that would be willing to take 25 at-risk young males to the 76'ers game from your community.I will provide the tickets, but the young men must be in middle school or high school and they cannot be related to you.The purpose of this is to step outside of our circle and invest in the young men in our community that are on the wrong path.The catch is you must continue to mentor them beyond the game. I would never ask someone to do something that I'm not willing to do, so I am going to select a kid as well. We have to start from somewhere. The game is Wednesday and it's on a first come basis.Men our young brothers need us.Each man must select one kid.

    Bars Open on Thanksgiving 2017 in Philadelphia
    If family time gets to be too much, you may need a drink (or 10) after this year's Thanksgiving feast. While the liquor stores may be closed, many bars in Philadelphia are kind enough to open their doors to all of us in need of some relaxation.

TREE NEWS! East Point Breeze Neighbors, along with several dozen other Civics in town are gearing up to get the PHS : Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Fall Street Trees in the ground this coming Saturday, November 18. We're looking for about 6-8 volunteers to help dig the holes, stick 'em in, and get them good and staked. We've got the supplies, we just need yer muscles. You would need to be available from 9-noon. There's even a post-tree Pizza Party at Brewery ARS, hosted by our friends at Newbold CDC. Either send us a message, or email clean@epbneighbors.org if you're interested. AND! The time has come to apply for next year's trees. PHS has moved their application online, but if you know of a neighbor who needs to do it the old fashioned way on paper, reach out to clean@epbneighbors.org and we can help. Applications are due NOVEMBER 29! Apply here: https://pg-cloud.com/phs/?openform=request-a-tree Let's GREEN THE BREEZE!
