Love Your Block Round 2 & ReEnergize Pittsburgh’s “BLACK AND GOLD CITY GOES GREEN” Blitz

On October 5th, Lawrenceville United will be hosting a second round of work at Paper Street Place, thanks to ServePGH’s “Best Block Revitalization Project” by the Mayor’s Love Your Block program .  Volunteers will work from 9a – 2p focused on laying stepping stones, sealing the mural created by local artist David Calfo, planting blubs for the spring, laying mulch, painting the picnic tables and steps, and more!  Tools, supplies, breakfast, and snacks will be provided.


In addition, GTECH’s ReEnergize Pittsburgh Program is having a blitz throughout the neighborhood and at the park. Come to the park and receive a free bag of energy efficient tools to use in your home, like CFL light bulbs and a smart power strip.  The bags are provided by Black and Gold City Goes Green and Duquesne Light as part of their Watt Choices program.  The blitz will run from 10a – 1p with lunch provided. The Black and City Goes Green is a project of PennFuture and is the community arm of the Pittsburgh Climate Initiative. The campaign works to educate Pittsburgh residents on energy efficiency and how to take green actions in their lives.

See you October 5th!
