If the proverbial saying “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb” bears any truth, hopefully we’ll see some calm, sunny days in the upcoming weeks. And what better way to shake off the winter blues than by getting outside and giving back to our community? Luckily, there are a whole host of community health and wellness programs in Southeastern Pennsylvania that offer you opportunities to get outside and give back.
The IBC Foundation Building Healthier Communities Grant Program
Our Building Healthier Communities program awards grants to diverse community health and wellness programs in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Many of these grantees are hosting upcoming outdoor activities in Philadelphia that give you an opportunity to enjoy the warmer weather while making a difference in the community.
