Join Lilypad/SPPRC today. Help shape the future of South Philly.

We all know it takes a village to raise children. Join SPPRC/Lilypad as we transition to our brand new name and space at 1234 S. Broad Street. Let’s get the support we all need to help create a strong, diverse community. Did you know SPPRC/Lilypad runs the list-serve Kids South Of Washington and CityKids Consignment Sale? Visit us on Facebook, for activities and things to do with kids in our city and to see our latest Lilypad events.

Do you want to help out with our new space? Donate your time by shoveling dirt and debris into trash bags (any Dads who can help out for a few hours?). Run a 1.5 hour playgroup? Help out with any items from our wish list? Volunteer for as little or as much time as you are able.
