Thank You to All PPA Employees

Dear Team,

I want to extend my sincere thanks and best wishes to all PPA employees. This year has been one that we could not have imagined. The COVID-19 pandemic brought uncertainty, devastation, and many hardships to our economy and our families. However, through it all, each of you has remained focused on our mission. I am thankful that we can reflect and be encouraged by the strength of our team.

As we navigate this challenging year, one word describes the PPA staff – resilient.  Individually and collectively, you stood up to the unpredictable trials and challenges. As a result, the PPA family is stronger and better as we provide essential support to the City of Philadelphia during a time of overwhelming challenge.
