Looking Back on Another Successful Year in KOP
Thanks to our incredible community, 2019 was another year for the record books
While the year 2019 is slowly winding down, it's clear that the momentum in King of Prussia is not! This year brought growth, prosperity and a whole lot of NEW to KOP. From beautiful new housing options, to first-to-the-market restaurants and retailers and state-of-the-art office buildings, King of Prussia continues to serve as a magnet for investment. The future of KOP looks equally as bright, with significant development projects in the works like Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's new inpatient hospital, the redeveloped office building from Brandywine Realty Trust at 650 Park Avenue, Topgolf and the $500M Discovery Labs project at Innovation Renaissance.

We are grateful to play a role in the evolution of this community as Pennsylvania's premier live-work-play destination. Take a look at a few of the programatic highlights we are most proud of as we look back at 2019.


EVENT

Toast the Holidays with Us & Donate to Those in Need
King of Prussia District is once again holding a Holiday Food Drive for food insufficient members of the Upper Merion community this holiday season. All collected food and personal care items will be donated to Upper Merion Area Community Cupboard (UMACC). We will also accept cash or check donations for UMACC.

The Upper Merion Area Community Cupboard, located in the Valley Forge Presbyterian building, is a food pantry open to anyone who lives within the bounds of the Upper Merion Area School District and is hungry or food insufficient. The UMACC is a collaborative and empathetic community response of our schools, municipalities, businesses, communities of faith, and caring neighbors. Their hope and goal is to strengthen our most vulnerable neighbors through food supplementation.
 

Donations will also be accepted at our Holiday Reception! Following our Annual Meeting at the Hyatt House, join us on December 12 at Bahama Breeze in KOP to network and enjoy light bites and refreshments as we toast to another successful year in King of Prussia

Win Big by Shopping Small
Upper Merion Holiday Passport Program
Patronizing small businesses is a win for everyone–the shopper, the store owner and the local community! For every $1 spent at a small, local business in Upper Merion, an average of $0.67 stays right here.

Upper Merion Township's Economic & Community Development Committee (ECDC), in partnership with King of Prussia District, launched their first ever Holiday Passport Program on Small Business Saturday (November 30th) as a way to encourage and incentivize shoppers to check out small and local businesses right here in the township. Upper Merion is home to some of the best shopping in the world, which includes many great small businesses.
