Mantua residents & Philadelphia LISC team up for playground rejuvenation

Working to create a beautiful and safe community, 25 Mantua residents spent April 20th sprucing up their favorite community playground at 33rd and Wallace Streets (called “Bumpety Bump”) by painting walls, weeding beds, and planting flowering plants for kids and neighbors to enjoy.

Among the volunteers were residents involved in the We Are Mantua! neighborhood planning initiative supported by SCI-West and Philadelphia LISC, 7 youth members from the Mantua youth advisory committee “Da Bottom For…” (DB4), Drexel University students, and 4 staff from the Philadelphia LISC office as part of LISC’s nationwide Day of Service. Primex Garden Center provided discounted perennials and annuals for the event, and the West Philly Tool library lent us tools for the project.
