Community Roundup: St. Joseph’s House Graduation BBQ Bash and Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse’s Second Annual Slide-A-Thon

Jun 10, 2021

On Thursday, May 13, St. Joseph's House—part of the expansion of Depaul USA's Dax Program into Philadelphia—honored its first graduating class with a celebratory BBQ Bash for graduates, residents, and staff. The celebration included food and drinks, live entertainment, raffle drawings, poetry readings, and more.

In its first year, St. Joseph's House has served 30 students from universities throughout Philadelphia, with 24 students currently living in the home. The Dax Program aims to address students' immediate crisis of homelessness by providing stable and safe housing, while also providing various services that support a successful path toward the continuation and completion of their studies.

On Saturday, May 15, PFCU's Erin Ellis attended the Second Annual Slide-A-Thon at the Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse. This year's Slide-A-Thon attendees ranged from ages 1 to 67. Attendees were able to enjoy private and exclusive access to the historic Ann Newman Giant Wooden Slide—more than 100 years old and 60 feet long—while competing for the highest number of slides during a given timeslot to support Smith. PFCU sponsored Erin's team, which was comprised of 20 sliders who slid down the slide 374 times in 20 minutes while being cheered on by 16 adults and 15 kids. Team PFCU raised an additional $850 for Smith!
