In December, our friends at P. J. Clarke’s were included in Eater Philadelphia’s list of the most charitable restaurants in the city. Read the article here. They are #22 on the list and their write-up focuses on their work with CPS, which has only gotten started. Congratulations to everyone at P. J.’s and thank you for all you’re doing for CPS!
Some of our Fifth Graders have been participating in the My Daughter’s Kitchen Cooking class. This week, their last class was written about for philly.com. See the headline and a little sample here and click here to see the whole thing!
An advocate for the CPS community and for the neighborhood we’ve called home since our beginning, CPS Trustee Tonetta Graham has been involved with another significant project to benefit the people of Strawberry Mansion. Through her work as President of the Strawberry Mansion Community Development Corporation, in cooperation with Audubon of Pennsylvania and Outward Bound, she helped bring the Discovery Center to the area around the East Park Reservoir in Fairmount Park.
The article linked here discusses how the project came about and includes her perspective on how it benefits this community.
The gallery of photos, from the opening days, give a sense of what the Discovery Center looks like on the inside.

This fall, CPS has continued our commitment to the C in our name. We continue to announce our presence in the neighborhoods and communities we call home.
On September 15th, we participated in the annual Strawberry Mansion Day. Thanks to the Strawberry Mansion NAC and CDC, along with Council President Darrell Clarke’s Office, for hosting this fantastic community celebration.
On October 13th, State Rep Donna Bullock and the Fairmount CDC hosted Girard Avenue Community Day. We are proud of our community-minded friends and advocates for hosting a festive and successful event!
If you weren’t able to make it out to this wonderful event, or if you want to remember the great time you had, our friends at MainLine Focus put together some amazing videos that really captured this great event benefiting CPS!
Take a look! You might even see some familiar CPS faces throughout!
We are so excited about the progress being made on our new home! We can’t wait to get in there when it’s ready! Stay tuned for hard hat opportunities!
