On June 28, we held our first ever Socially Distant Litter Patrol event, in partnership with Moishe House Pittsburgh! Volunteers across Squirrel Hill spent two hours cleaning up the area where they live with members of their households, while our Litter Patrol chair Barb Grover biked around the neighborhood to check in and refill supplies.

We want to give a special shout-out to Commonplace Coffee, which generously offered a 25% discount on pastries and beverages for all Litter Patrol volunteers on the day of the event!
