Welcome to Lancaster Avenue, a bustling commercial corridor that links diverse neighborhoods. The avenue is a unique destination with delightfully diverse eateries and shops located between 34th and 48th Streets. Only blocks away from Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania, Lancaster Avenue is one of Philadelphia’s best-kept secrets. Energized by creative businesses, artist communities, and deep history, this thoroughfare is walkable and convenient for shoppers.

Due to inclement weather in the forecast for Monday, we have had to make some changes to PEC’s plan for service activities. Here is the update for the MLK Day of Service:
PEC's outdoor activities for 1/21 have been cancelled (Lancaster Avenue Clean Up and Food Cupboard Pop Up).
Indoor events at the Blackwell Community Center (4701 Aspen Street) are still happening on 1/21 starting at 10am. This includes the Blueprint of Our Lives conference and Children's activities (see attached flyers), including a reading of Ghost Boys.
PEC's regular programs and administrative offices are closed on Monday, January 21, in honor of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service.
