We have received a Love Your Block grant through the City of Pittsburgh. Love Your Block is a partnership of Mayor William Peduto and People’s Gas to revitalize Pittsburgh block by block.
“Through the generous help of volunteers, along with the Love Your Block grant, we will begin to prepare for our Annual Memorial Day celebration at Soldiers & Sailors to help beautify and enhance the Memorial,” said President and CEO John F. McCabe.
Volunteers include members of Girl Scouts of Western Pennsylvania, Eat’n Park employees and other volunteers who will participate and share in beautifying this historical landmark that stands as a tribute to honor and remember all veterans of Pennsylvania who served to protect our freedoms. Projects to be completed include cleaning, painting and planting small flower beds along with other minor projects.
