Stash the Trash spring updates

Our friends at Stash the Trash have been hard at work cleaning up hard-to-reach dump sites throughout the city. President Derek Green recently checked in with us and shared this progress report.

On March 19th, the First Unitarian Church Youth Group came out to volunteer with us on our 3rd cleanup of Browns Hill Road. While there is still much work to be done, they made awesome progress! In just 5 hours, they filled over 30 bags of litter and collected a dozen or so tires from the side of the road! We can't thank them enough.

We are also looking forward to our next group clean-up on May 9th... when we will be teaming with Amizade and Mercy Hospital for the South Asian Youth Summit. 24 students from South Asia will be coming to Pittsburgh and help us to clean up some much needed areas in the Bloomfield community! We are very excited, and will update you on our progress. Check out Amizade and the wonderful work they do at http://www.amizade.org

As many of you already know, in 2010 we worked to eliminate 19 of the 20 surveyed dumpsites in the Greenfield community... and we are pleased to announce that the final dumpsite on Haworth Road will begin its final stages of clean-up in the next few weeks (special thanks to super-volunteer Joe Divack for agreeing to help in the process)! We hope that before summer, Greenfield's 20 surveyed dumpsites will have been hit... which would be a shining example of what can be accomplished in other communities as well! For info on volunteer oppotunities, please email me at derekgreen84@yahoo.com.

Thanks to everyone for your support, and your love for this beautiful city. An extra special thanks as well the Allegheny Cleanways for their continued support of our mission and their generous donation of supplies when we need them.
