Each year, our neighbors at Pitt-Ohio sponsor an Earth Day clean up. This year, the celebration takes place on Saturday, April 20th.
Residents from The Cork Factory Lofts and Lot 24 are invited to join Pitt-Ohio employees and their families to improve the appearance of our corner of The Strip District. The day begins at 9:30 am—rain or shine—with team assignments and distribution of t-shirts, work gloves and collection bags at the Pitt-Ohio headquarters, 15 27th Street. Most of the cleanup effort is concentrated along Railroad Street as Pitt-Ohio trucks make rounds to collect trash bags and debris. The project wraps up at noon, when volunteers are provided with lunch, courtesy of Pitt-Ohio.
Organizing resident participation is Jerry of The Cork Factory Lofts. If you would like to participate in this Earth Day community event, drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While not as much of a relic as The Cork Factory or Penn Mac, Pitt-Ohio is a Strip District institution. This family-run supply-chain, industrial shipping and truckload organization has been fulfilling the regions and nation’s needs for more than 30 years. Visit their website to learn more about their services and team.
