Dear Friends,
There are so many ways you can be part of our clean water work!

You can volunteer for just one day or once a month to check on the health of a creek, fix deer fencing, or lead a walk in Tacony Creek Park (TCP). You can join a committee, such as TCP Keepers (TCP friends group) or our Development Committee.
You can forward this email on to your neighbors or colleagues and suggest they sign up for our newsletter. You can serve on our Board of Directors or Advisors. You can donate to us monthly or annually. Lot of choices, right?

Please make the choice to be an active partner in 2019!
We're nearly 50% of the way to our goal to raise $15,000 by January 1 for the #TTFDreamVan!
Will you help us reach our goal?
Gifts small and large make a difference.
We're announcing the kick-off of our
