The Stanton Heights Neighborhood Association is partnering with Comcast to host a beautification project and  litter cleanup in Stanton Heights in conjunction with Comcast Cares Day and the Spring Redd Up. There is a job for everyone! The event kicks off at 8 am with registration, coffee and a light breakfast provided by Comcast. The cleanup starts promptly at 9 am.

The cleanup will begin on the corner of the intersection of Stanton Ave. and Woodbine St.—the site of the proposed community park.  The cleanup, will address litter and larger illegally dumped items at the community park site, removal of invasive plants and vines, planting in the bed on the site as well as a litter pick up on the the streets near the site.  There will be jobs for all ability levels.  Participants are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes, long pants and long sleeves.   Volunteers under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult supervisor during the cleanup and must have a consent form signed by a parent or guardian.  Gloves and bags will be provided but items like loppers, bow saws and wheelbarrows would be helpful for the removal of invasive plants.

Funding for the event is provided by Comcast.  Comcast volunteers will be helping with the cleanup, and Comcast representatives will be on hand to give away T-shirts to all pre-registered volunteers.  Volunteers are welcome to stay for pizza after the clean-up to celebrate a job well done. Please join us, and share this invitation with your neighbors!   Individuals interested in volunteering for this event should contact  Michael Sturges at 412.606.7542 or mike.sturges@alleghenycleanways.org  or  Jim Heinrich 412-782-1313 or jheinrich81354@gmail.com
