This year, CAN DU volunteers will make an impact in Drexel's West Philadelphia neighborhood by working with Fairmount Park Conservancy, cleaning up and restoring the Parkside Evans playground and park area. Projects include trash and debris clean-up, playground upgrades, painting, trail restoration, fall planting, and more.
The day will kick off with a volunteer breakfast at Drexel Pizza followed by transportation to Parkside Evans playground. Refreshments will be available on-site throughout the morning and volunteers will receive a complimentary commemorative CAN DU T-shirt!
