Citizens Against Litter

"Redding up" together

The memory of our late Mayor Bob O'Connor was honored in a perfect way last weekend when the neighborhoods of Homewood and Squirrel Hill came together to "Redd Up."

Hundreds of volunteers donned vests and gloves and picked up several truckloads of litter along streets and in alleys, from yards and in parks. The weekend-long event not only beautified Homewood and Squirrel Hill, it also created new and lasting friendships between the two neighborhoods.

And none of this would have been possible without the help of the city Department of Public Works, whose managers and employees went above and beyond the call of public service to make the Redd Up weekend an unqualified success.

As the co-chairs of the Homewood Squirrel Hill Redd Up Coalition, we thank everyone involved for honoring Mayor O'Connor and spreading beauty and harmony in our city.
