Polish Hill to host two groups of young people on a busy Saturday

There’s a lot going on in Polish Hill tomorrow — two separate events in which young people will be visiting the neighborhood.

First, a large group of students from the University of Pittsburgh for Pitt Make a Difference Day, is coming to Polish Hill to help do cleanup and maintenance of green spaces around the neighborhood.  The students will be overseen by PHCA volunteers, led by Green Team leader Valerie Testa.  Valerie has been working hard for weeks to plan this event.  If you happen to pass by a group of these volunteers as they’re working, please consider telling them how much we appreciate their help.

In the evening, a group of young leaders in town for the One Young World conference will be welcomed with a community potluck at Lili Coffee Shop.  You may have read about the One Young World conference, which takes place around the world, in a different city each year.  Pittsburgh competed to host the conference, which started yesterday and runs until Monday.  The PHCA is hosting a small group of these young leaders, and we invite you to attend.  The potluck is from 7:00—10:00 p.m. on Saturday — that’s tomorrow evening — at Lili Coffee Shop.  Drinks will be available for purchase from Lili, and it’s free to attend.

If you would like to come and bring something, please get in touch.  For more information, contact the PHCA at 412.681.1950, or email phca@phcapgh.org.

We are excited to host these two groups of young people who are doing good work in the world — please help us make them feel welcome!
