PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia community is cleaning up after Ida left so much of our city underwater. On Saturday morning, dozens of volunteers showed up along the Schuylkill Riverfront.Woman Killed After Shooting Inside Kensington Home, Police Say
Schuylkill Banks, the nonprofit behind the river trail, organized the effort. It was Emily McCully’s second-day volunteering.
“Yesterday we started regrading this whole area which was washed away,” McCully said. “We took everything out of the trailer, washed it off, dried it off, put it back in, same thing for the shed. Philly is Philly, right? So, when people come out to help, it’s always a great thing.”READ MORE: Cars Towed, Scrapped In Wilmington Leads To Federal Lawsuit
