YPN volunteers were at Chew Playground in South Philadelphia this past Saturday for Greater Philadelphia Cares LOVE your Park Day. They joined other groups, from Drexel University and the community, to beautify the park. Activities included picking up trash, removing weeds from grass areas, mulching the trees and planting flowers. Chew Playground includes a recreation center, which provides sports programs for children K-12 as well day camps.
