King of Prussia District is proud to announce that our 10th Annual Holiday Food Drive, produced this year in partnership with Conlin’s Print, was our most fruitful drive to date, thanks to overwhelming participation from our incredible business community. From October 19-November 16, 12 businesses hosted custom printed donation boxes and encouraged their employees, customers and residents to join in supporting our local food pantry, the Upper Merion Area Community Cupboard (UMACC).

LOCAL DEALS

Get Your Holiday Gift Cards with a Side of Extra Incentives
We all have those hard-to-shop-for friends or family members. You know the ones. You can spend an hour in their favorite store and still aren’t quite sure what to buy. The perfect solution? Let them make the choice! Gift cards to their favorite retailers and restaurants alleviate the guessing game and ensure that your family members and/or friends are getting exactly what they want. Even better? Many of their favorite places are offering incentives to buy gift cards right now! That means one for them…and one for you, too!


PROJECT UPDATE

Phase One of First Avenue Linear Park is Complete
King of Prussia District is excited to introduce a new space for employees and residents to enjoy! We partnered with PennDOT and nine commercial property owners to create the first of three multimodal trail projects along First Avenue. Phase One provides the foundation for future multi-use pathways that span from North Gulph Road to Allendale Road in Moore Park, KOP. 

TRANSFORMATIVE TRANSPORTATION
