What is a Neighborhood Blitz?
A Neighborhood Blitz is an event that grew from a pilot project and has been adopted by many Pittsburgh neighborhoods. The event entails Black and Gold City Goes Green volunteers going door-to-door handing out energy- and water saving tools such as CFL light bulbs, smart power strips, and LED nightlights.These tools help folks save energy and money in their homes and in turn reduce their carbon dioxide emissions.
When is the next Neighborhood Blitz?
We don't have any more blitzes planned for the remainder of the year, but stay tuned for future events!
Also, we want to thank all the awesome volunteers who came out to our Elliott neighborhood blitz in September. With their help we managed to hand out 187 energy-saving toolkits to residents in their neighborhood which was a phenomenal feat! We are very grateful for the Elliott Community Group for helping us accomplish such a successful blitz.
