Chester Eastside received a $20,000 grant from the PHL COVID-19 Fund

Great News! Chester Eastside received a $20,000 grant from the PHL COVID-19 Fund to help with our expenses for reopening. The money will be used to purchase hand sanitizers and portable Lucite panels for administrative, dining and computer lab areas and pay for a professional deep cleaning and OST staff members to organize our areas. The fund is a partnership among the Philadelphia Foundation, United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey
and City of Philadelphia Government. Many thanks! #phlcovid19fund #philadelphiafoundation #phillysjunited #cityofphiladelphia #reopening #chestereastside
