It is always important to acknowledge the efforts of individuals and organizations that are working within our neighborhoods to improve our communities. RenewPittsburgh is just such an organization. From their website —

RenewPittsburgh is an all-volunteer organization to promote renewing Pittsburgh from within. We recognize the tremendous potential of our City, and believe that Pittsburgh can be a magnet for those who want to live, work, grow a business and raise a family. Our mission is to organize citizens to work together with our community leaders and residents to promote rebuilding our City, neighborhood by neighborhood.

They have a full schedule of events in neighborhoods all over Pittsburgh. Definitely go and check out their website.
