In 1945, Joseph and Lillian Bartash began the publication of the Southwest Globe Times community newspaper that focused on the good news stories happening in Southwest Philadelphia. In the summer of 2005, Southwest CDC began a partnership with Mr. and Mrs. Bartash to continue publishing the newspaper. Both, Mr. and Mrs. Bartash died in September 2007, just three weeks apart. Southwest CDC is proud to continue their legacy of sharing good news.
Today the Southwest Globe Times is published bi-weekly and 6,000 copies are distributed throughout Southwest Philadelphia. Many articles are written by community members who want to promote their programs and special events.
