Today a $50,000 grant from the Citizens Bank Foundation was presented to Philadelphia LISC (Local Initiative Support Corporation) for is Sustainable Communities Initiative. The monies from this grant are being used to revitalize neighborhoods. This grant will also be used to provide The Partnership CDC’s Green Roofing training program designed to create green jobs while lowering home energy bills.
The 300 Block of Holly Street in West Philadelphia was one of the two blocks selected to receive free roofs. Nine houses on the block have been completed so far; two have received a green roof, and seven have received a cool roof. The remainder of the block will be completed by the class of nine graduates of the Green Roofing Professional Certification Exam.

On Monday, January 10, 2011, a five alarm fire destroyed the homes of residents living in a West Philadelphia apartment building. While reports say no one was injured or killed in the fire, many residents lost everything. Mayor Michael Nutter says 118 people are homeless as a result of the fire.
The Red Cross and Salvation Army have been providing emergency shelter and services to the families. The Partnership CDC is supporting their efforts by collecting donations for personal hygiene products, towels, washcloths, hats, scarfs, gloves, coats and children’s books or toys. Financial donations should be sent directly to Salvation Army 5501 Market Street, Philadelphia PA 19139.
