GIVING BACK TO OUR COMMUNITY
We’re proud to be a member of the Northern Liberties neighborhood and an ongoing supporter of our local community. Giving back to the community in which we work is part of our belief that, by collaborating, we can achieve something much greater than we ever could alone.
As part of our mission, we want to strengthen the bonds that tie us together as a community by sponsoring events and organizations in line with the same proactive agenda we foster. By making more than just donations, we hope to initiate progress where it’s needed most.
To see a change greater than you can imagine, you have to become a part of something bigger than yourself. Consider this as something more than corporate responsibility – rather a social purpose that affords us the opportunity to reach people. We welcome you to our neighborhood and invite you in our doors. Come see what we’re doing and join us. Together, anything is possible.
STAY TRUE + PHILLY PHOTO STUDIO
PPS teamed with a community organization and Port Richmond neighbor, Stay True Philadelphia, a non-profit, which helps under-privileged youth become agents of political and social change in their communities. PPS gave their students some insight into the joy and use of photography as a means of expression and communication. Every summer, students document their experiences with photographs. As a way of culminating the kids’ efforts, a gallery is held in their honor at the end of the summer. You can read about all our adventures with Stay True year round on our blog and watch a video from the first gallery show below that was produced by Florescio Films.
PHILLY PHOTO DAY by the PPAC
In 2012, PPS sponsored the Philadelphia Photo Arts Council and their initiative, Philly Photo Day. Philly Photo Day is part of a three-year grant-based art project which invites all residents of Philadelphia to take a picture on the same day and submit them to become part of a unique exhibition featuring everyone’s varied points-of-view from the same day.
