Party With A Purpose: National Night Out

"National Night Out (NNO) is a night that neighbors across America can send a powerful message about neighborhood unity, awareness, safety and police-community partnership."

On August 2, Upper Darby Township, 6th District Councilwoman Raya Fagg, and 7th District Councilman Nate Goodson are partnering with The Upper Darby Township Weed & Seed to host the first township wide NNO. The theme, Giving Neighborhood Drugs and Crime a Going Away Party, will allow neighbors to learn safety tips and party with a purpose.

It won't be all partying. At 7PM, a diverse group of members from faith based organizations will speak to the crowd about how we can take our neighborhoods back and make Upper Darby *OUR* home again.

Sponsors of this year's party are Target, Wawa, and the Franklin Mint Credit Union. There will be neighborhood civic association information tables, child ID kits, and activities for children as well as the adults.

The event will be held at the 69th Street, 505 South 69th Street (Intersection of Ruskin Lanes and 69th Street) from 5PM to 8PM. For additional information, you can contact Councilwoman Fagg at or by phone at 484-293-1813.
