It is a time for diverse communities in our area to come together, share and learn from each other.

peace camp 2Over the past 10 years, Philadelphia Praise Center (PPC) has developed a reputation as a site for building strong community partnerships, especially in times of need. In an effort to continue to be a beacon of light in the area, the proceeds from this event will be used to fund a neighborhood beautification project linked to the PPC building, which is available for local community groups in the area to host meetings and various activities. The beautification project will include creating murals on the outside of the building as an icon of hope for the development of strong communities. The mural will serve as inspiration and a point of connection to our surroundings. The hope is that an improved building can serve as a catalyst toward local economic development, helping to attract interest from tourists and visitors to our neighborhood.
