PEC News / Events
This month, neighbors and long-time supporters, Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, held a four week food drive for our food cupboard. Organized by the hospital’s Administrative Department, the food drive helped to feed our community at a time when our cupboard struggles the most. “We do everything we possibly can for PEC,” said Kimberly Hibbs, one of the drive’s organizers, when asked about the hospital’s relationship with PEC. Throughout the years, Penn Presbyterian has supported many of our initiatives, including the Lancaster Avenue Jazz and Arts Festival, holiday gift drives for the children of PEC and PEC’s annual coat drive. Gary Ginsberg, Assistant Executive Director, also coordinates drives for PEC because he believes that “PEC is a part of the family.” We are thankful and honored to have the vital support of our neighbors!
