    Volunteers are invited to join neighbors, businesses, and friends for “Love Your Avenue” on Torresdale Ave in the Tacony neighborhood of Philadelphia, the Tacony Community Development Corporation (CDC) announced today. The CDC is looking for volunteers to sweep, pick up, and clean up Torresdale Ave for an hour or more on Saturday October 6th. The event will kick-off at the Tacony Brach of the Free Library of Philadelphia and last from 10AM-1PM. This event was organized by the CDC in partnership with the Tacony Civic Association. Clean-up supplies will be provided by the City of Philadelphia Community Life Improvement Program and Major Artery Revitalization Committee.

    This event partners with the UnLitter Us Network, an award winning program from the Philadelphia Streets Department. The volunteer Clean and Safe Team of the CDC has worked to improve Torresdale Ave in Tacony, and is working to make it a “Litter Free Zone.” The team has reached out to businesses, property owners, neighbors and friends to reduce litter and thank businesses that clean their storefronts regularly. This is part of the CDC’s broader effort to revitalize the Torresdale Ave Commercial Corridor in the Tacony neighborhood of Philadelphia.

    Volunteers interested in participating should contact the Tacony CDC office at (215)501-7799 or e-mail them at
