Block Captains

Blocks captains meet monthly prior to the PBCIP community meeting. Each of the 55 blocks in Parkside has a designated block captain, though some blocks without a captain are served by someone on a neighboring block. Not sure who your block captain is? Contact PBCIP at (856) 964-0440.

Block captains are the link between residents and PBCIP, disseminating timely information about meetings, events or issues of concern that may arise. They also:

  • troubleshoot resident problems and work with PBCIP to connect residents to the resources they need
  • serve as the eyes and ears of PBCIP in the community
  • meet everything from immediate and basic needs to social opportunities to leadership development

Specific activities block captains work on during the year:

  • PBCIP's annual Christmas food basket drive which provides a holiday meal for 50 families who otherwise could not afford a holiday dinner
  • the annual Haddon Avenue Street Festival each fall
  • and median beautification projects involving neighborhood schoolchildren
