Thank you for rocking the block of Pottstown with us on Friday, April 15, 2016!
This event marked the kick-off for our Neighborhood Revitalization program in Pottstown. The one-day community clean up event, linked to Pottstown CARES, had 123 volunteers who completed 12 projects on the 300 and 400 Blocks of Walnut, Chestnut, and Beech streets.
Projects completed were identified as priorities by Pottstown residents at a community meeting, and included:
- Painting 6 porches
- Cleaning-up 5 yards
- Picking up litter
- Installing reflective house numbers on 15 homes
- Completing community surveys of neighborhood residents.
We are so grateful to all of our collaborators for this great event, including the Borough of Pottstown, Glocker and Company Realtors, The Hill School, Lowe's, Pottstown School District, Genesis Housing Corporation, Montgomery County Community College, Mosaic Community Land Trust, Pottstown Fire Department, Phillies Fire Company, New Eden Community Development Corporation, Pottstown CARES, and Victory Christian Life Center, to make this day a success.
