Community Impact Project

The DVGBC Community Impact Project is a volunteer-led initiative begun by Kristie Kozenewski as her DVGBC Ambassador project. The inspiration for the effort came from the Greenbuild 2013 Legacy project. Kristie and her co-chairs established a committee of DVGBC volunteers in 2016. They released a request for concepts and after careful consideration selected New Kensington CDC’s (NKCDC) Frankford Gateway initiative. The two organizations have come together in a collaborative partnership to integrate sustainable and environmental practices into a neighborhood in need of transformation. 

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our fundraising efforts, helping us reach our goal of $10,000! 

There will be a Volunteer Day on Saturday, June 10th at Frankford Ave & E Sterner St, Philadelphia, PA 19134. Join us to do site preparation and planting native shade trees, shrubs, a cane fruit orchard, perennial border plants, and installing a pervious parking area. The deadline to sign up for volunteering is Sunday, June 4th. 

Sign up to volunteer on June 10th!
