Earth Day Green Streets Clean Up

Join Aspinwall Neighbors for our Spring Green Streets Clean Up to honor Earth Day in Aspinwall. Volunteers are needed to help clean up Aspinwall streets, alleys and parks. Aspinwall Neighbors will provide the supplies needed, and you can volunteer on the day and time that works best for you between Friday, April 23 and Sunday, April 25th. Volunteers will be asked to sign-up for specific areas to focus their clean-up efforts.

Aspinwall Neighbors will pass out supplies from 11am – 3pm on Saturday, April 24th on Commercial Avenue. Water and juice will be available to volunteers courtesy of Botanical Vegan Cafe & Market. The Aspinwall Police Department will also host a prescription drug take back to collect unused or expired medications.

Supply kits may also be picked up from the Borough Building beginning Tuesday, April 20 – Friday, April 23 during regular business hours.

Introducing: Green Streets WALLStars

Want to help keep our streets clean all year long? Aspinwall Neighbors is launching an adopt-a-block program where residents volunteer to regularly canvass assigned blocks in Aspinwall, tending to litter. Aspinwall Neighbors provides the volunteers with safety vests, gloves, and litter picks to assist the volunteers with their efforts. This program will begin in May 2021.

Aspinwall Porch Toast Anniversary

Almost a year ago, a neighbor invited the community to show their love and support for each other by raising a glass for Aspinwall’s first “porch toast.” Many of our neighbors have continued this tradition weekly throughout the pandemic. On Saturday, March 20th at 5pm, we invite all of our neighbors back out on their porches, stoops, and balconies to once again raise their glasses in a show of community strength.

We also invite you to show your love for the restaurants and businesses that mean so much to our neighborhood by shopping small and eating local. Make a purchase at a participating business below on March 20th and use your receipt to enter to win $150 in gift cards from local businesses!

Shop & Eat Local

The following businesses will be participating in a special promotion for Aspinwall residents on Saturday, March 20th during their regularly scheduled business hours. Don’t forget to mention the porch toast and ask for a receipt to use as your raffle entry. Enter to win here by March 21st at noon using your receipt.

We want everyone to know about this event. Here’s how you can help:

  • Share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter or email to neighborhood friends.
  • Make your own chalk art announcement or window sign for passersby.

Make it Festive

Neighbors are encouraged to decorate their porches or create signs or chalk art with positive messages for the community (we knew you were looking for a reason to leave your holiday lights up).
