Foundation provides money for neighborhood cleanups
Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership is starting the Building a Better Warren program thanks to a $1,500 donation from the Trumbull County Foundation’s O’Brien Children Memorial Fund, a part of the Community Foundation of Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio.
Building a Better Warren will offer residents and neighborhood associations interested in taking on a neighborhood cleanup, beautification or other improvement project a chance to apply for $250 toward the project.
The application process is simple and involves an individual or group committing to a cleanup event or beautification project, proposing a date, time and work plan and proposing a budget.
TNP already provides free trash bags and gloves to residents and groups executing cleanups of public areas, plywood for board-ups and a tool-loan program.
Among the items that can be purchased through the program are flowers, plant materials, paint, playground equipment or repairs or fencing.
