PAL Day at the Penn Ice Rink!!
DPS and Penn’s Division of Business Services hosted over 200 area youth for an afternoon of skating and pizza at the Penn Ice Rink/Class of 1923 Area on Thursday, April 12th. Volunteers from St. Joe’s Prep and Penn Ice Hockey clubs helped the kids to learn new skills and have a great time out on the ice. This day offers PAL kids a great opportunity to skate, have fun, and eat pizza with their favorite PAL Officers.
PAL is “Cops Helping Kids.” We aspire to be the premier youth-serving organization in the city, by reducing crime, promoting character development, and improving educational outcomes. We accomplish this by having Philadelphia Police Officers, supported by civilians, offer educational, athletic, and recreational programs to youth in some of the city’s highest crime and lowest income neighborhoods. PAL Centers are safe havens, offering a variety of free programs and other events to attract engage and develop more than 18,000 of Philadelphia’s youth.
