IVC Philadelphia/S.Jersey hosted our January retreat today, featuring Rev. Zuline Wilkenson from Chester Easide Inc. in the morning, and viewing “White Like Me” by Tim Wise in the afternoon. Service Corps Members left feeling refreshed and determined to continue exploring the impact of racism and white privilege.
Thank you to IHM Conference Center in Bryn Mawr for welcoming us and making us so comfortable!
Every day is a day of service at Chester Eastside. We celebrated Martin Luther King by serving lunch and offering items from our clothes closet. #MLKDay2020 #martinlutherkingday #dayofservice #lunch #clothescloset #chestereastside
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’
-Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Chester Eastside is one of only two non-profits in Delaware County to receive pro bono consulting through Compass Philadelphia’s 2020 Micro Projects. CEI is receiving $45,000 in services to assess its current revenue sources and strengthen and diversify funding streams. Rev. Z attended the orientation meeting and the professionals will be on site at the end of January. #compassphiladelphia #probono #nonprofits #greaterphiladelphia #chestereastside
