The Carrick Community Council has been awarded its first Love Your Block program grant.
The Love Your Block program is administered by Mayor Peduto’s office and is open to all eligible nonprofit organizations that are interested in beautifying a part of their neighborhood. Each grant is paid in the form of a $2,000 Home Depot gift card to be used toward the supplies needed for a project in their community.
The Carrick Community Council has selected Leolyn Parklet, at the corner of Leolyn and East Cherryhill streets, as the project to commit these funds to.
Volunteers are needed to paint playground equipment and fences, plant flowers and shrubs, and clean up the area. The date and time to volunteer will be announced soon, and if interested in volunteering or to join in with other Carrick residents and the City of Pittsburgh in making this park the best that it can be, call the Carrick Community Council at 412-339-0808 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
