Presby’s 2nd annual Day of Inspiration serves others throughout greater Philadelphia

June 26, 2017

This year’s Day of Inspiration saw team members donate their time and give back during various service activities hosted by nine of our communities throughout the area.

Presby’s Inspired Life was proud to host its third annual Day of Inspiration this past Friday, June 23.

This annual day of service assembled Presby team members, residents, and neighbors in various service projects hosted by our communities throughout the greater Philadelphia region.

This year, nine of our communities hosted service events ranging from donation drives, neighborhood beautification projects, an appreciation lunch for service workers, preservation duties at a local animal shelter and so much more.

We’re already looking forward to next year!

Day of Inspiration 2017 highlights

*Mantua: Presby team members, including president and CEO Judee Bavaria, residents and our friends from West Philadelphia’s Ralston Center prepared soup and meals that were then delivered residents.

*Broomall: Team members volunteered at nearby Providence Animal Shelter where they collected needed donations for the animals and participated in preservation duties throughout the shelter.

*Grace Court: A water drive was conducted for local police, firefighters and other first responders. Thanks in large part to our friends at the Clifton Heights Acme, over 170 cases of water were donated. Grace Court residents spoke about how much they appreciate all the first responders do and Yeadon councilwoman Clara Johnson stopped by to say “thank you” to all those who serve the community.

*Spring Mill: Residents and team members prepared “blessing bags” full of personal items and sundries.

*Jackson Place: Team members and residents hosted an appreciation barbeque for local service workers including police officers and transportation workers, among others. Philadelphia city councilman Mark Squilla stopped by to congratulate participants and to mingle with residents and the service workers who were enjoying lunch.
