When Donna Allie, the founder and president of Team Clean, chose to endorse the Strawberry Mansion Learning Center for the $5,000 gift she received upon being honored with the African American Chamber of Commerce for Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware’s Inaugural Chairman’s Award, little did Kevin Upshur anticipate the subsequent generous gesture from an unexpected source—the Philadelphia Phillies.
In a remarkable turn of events, the Phillies not only contributed a substantial $50,000 to Upshur but, in collaboration with Chevrolet Barlow Automotive Group, also presented a van. As The Strawberry Mansion Learning Center, a community-based educational initiative, focuses on providing enriching experiences for children in its program, this invaluable vehicle will enable Upshur to facilitate enriching field trips for the children in his program.
The entire Team Clean family is thrilled to learn of this development and feels a profound sense of pride in having played a role in bringing the Strawberry Mansion Learning Center the recognition and support it rightfully deserves. The combined efforts of individuals and organizations like Team Clean, the Philadelphia Phillies, and Chevrolet Barlow Automotive Group exemplify the positive impact that can be achieved through collaboration and community engagement.
