Three community groups are looking for volunteers – some on specific dates, and others with more flexible time commitments.

Friends of Pennypack Park will hold its monthly cleanup  tomorrow, weather permitting, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers are asked to go to the Delaware recreation area on State Road, just below Rhawn Street along the river. If you’re going, wear long pants and closed shoes. The group will supply gloves, grabbers, bags and refreshments. You can call 215-934-PARK for information, or to see if the cleanup is canceled.
