WHAT IS MARC?
For far too long, our elected officials have provided funding to non-profit groups to research, study and plan how to solve problems that plague our communities, leaving very little, or no money, to implement a plan. Financed in part by a grant from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's Department of Community and Economic Development, MARC is a non-profit organization focused on beautifying the community and improving the quality of your life in our neighborhoods.
By working with other non-profits, city and state agencies, MARC produces remarkable results in very short periods of time. Our resources are dedicated to constantly improve the community’s quality of life by enhancing its appearance through cleaning and beautification. MARC coordinates efforts with the City of Philadelphia’s Community Life Improvement Program (CLIP) to maintain the neighborhood's gateways, flower boxes, murals, business districts and underpasses.
MARC focuses on aesthetic improvements to major streets, business, highway and residential districts in Northeast Philadelphia, as well as supporting community activities, youth clubs and neighborhood organizations.
